Three earlier raids were carried out on Wednesday, with drugs, cash and phones among the items seized.

Supt Phil Staynings, Wiltshire Police's Swindon commander, said: “The last two days is all part of our ongoing proactive activity to disrupt these criminal groups which ultimately will have a positive impact on our communities. 

"We know local people will have concerns and worries about drug dealing and we hope this shows that we are committed to tackling this activity.  Not only do drugs cause misery for so many people, but the wider criminality linked to drug dealing, which often includes violence and intimidation, can have a huge impact on our communities.

"Serious and organised crime continues within our county and organised crime groups continue to operate, despite the current lockdown restrictions in place.  It remains a Force priority for us, reflected by the work not only carried out yesterday and today but everyday.
