A WOMAN was arrested and a quantity of what is believed to be a Class A drug was seized during police raids last week.
Officers from the Royston neighbourhood team swooped on an address in Layston Park, Royston, in the early hours of Friday, and seized a small amount of what is thought to be a Class A drug. They also arrested a 44-year old woman on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug.
A raid also took place at an address in Ridgeway, but no arrests were made and no drugs were found.
Royston's Neighbourhood Sergeant Jon Vine, who led the raids, said: "Officers executed these warrants following information from members of the public.
"Your calls really do count and make a difference and I would like to thank communities in Royston who report suspicious behaviour to us. With this information we can build intelligence and arrest suspects."
Sgt Vine added that those involved in drug dealing in Crow Country are "in the minority".
