Four people have been arrested in York following police raids as part of a major drugs investigation.
Specialist North Yorkshire Police officers carried out a series of raids in the Clifton and Clifton Moor areas of the city.
They seized a ‘significant quantity’ of suspected heroin and cocaine, as well as a large amount of cash, and high-value clothing and jewellery suspected to be the proceeds of crime.
At one address, a man in his 40s and a woman in her 30s were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply a class A drug and money laundering offences.
At another, a man and a woman in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of money laundering offences.
They have been released under investigation while extensive forensic and other police enquiries continue.
Police executed the warrants following a major investigation into the supply of illegal drugs in the city.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “If you are concerned about drug-related crime in your area, please call the police on 101 – or 999 if it’s an emergency.
“Information from local people is a crucial part of the fight against the supply of illegal drugs in our communities.”
