THREE people are in custody after police swooped on two homes in West Swindon.

Drugs and cash were seized in the raids, aimed at tackling heroin and crack cocaine dealing in the area.

Sgt Nathan Perry of Swindon North Police said: “The damage that addiction, supply and the violence often associated with this does to our communities is not acceptable. We will continue to work with members of the local community to target and shut down these operations.”

Photographs posted on police social media accounts showed £250 apparently seized in the raid.

Last week, more than 60 people were arrested as officers targeted homes across Swindon as part of a drive against County Lines drugs gangs.
