Fourteen small bags of what is thought to be the drug Mkat were discovered at Oakleigh Avenue, where a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug. He remains in police custody.
About a dozen plants, what is believed to be a substantial amount of cannabis bush and a large amount of cash were discovered at the house on Kerry Street. A 54-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man were arrested at the house, also on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled drugs. They have been released on police bail.
