Dozens of officers executed warrants at addresses in Chesterfield, Birmingham and Banbury - arresting eight men on suspicion of drug offences.

In Chesterfield the following people were arrested:
Two 21-year-old men were arrested at a house in Kirkstone Road
A 42-year-old man was arrested at a house in Crown Road
A 42-year-old man was arrested at a house in Rhodes Avenue.

Three other men were arrested at the following locations:
Two men, aged 20 and 24, were arrested at a house in Ansell Road, Birmingham.
A 27-year-old man was arrested in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
A total of 16 men have now been arrested in relation to the investigation into the alleged gang activities – with large quantities of class A drugs, cash and weapons seized during warrants on Tuesday.
Detective Sergeant Simon Cartwright, from the organised crime unit based in Chesterfield, said: “The past two days have seen substantial quantities of drugs taken off the streets of our county.
“As a force we will do all we can to target criminal gangs who are intent at making money at the expense of some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
“I hope the arrests over the past two days sends a clear message that we will not tolerate drugs being peddled on the streets of Derbyshire.”
