A large amount of cocaine and an estimated £70,000 in cash was seized during two police raids in Abbots Langley.
Officers from Hertfordshire’s Operational Support Group (OSG) forced entry to two addresses in the village simultaneously – one on the High Street and the other in Bedmond Road – just after 8am on Friday, July 17.
They searched the properties and both drugs and cash were discovered at both addresses before being taken as evidence.
A 50-year-old man from Abbots Langley was arrested on suspicion of money laundering and possession with intent to supply class A drugs as part of the operation.
A 41-year-old woman, also from Abbots Langley, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
They have both been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Sergeant David Perkins, who led the warrants, said: “Operations like this are only possible when we receive vital intelligence direct from our communities, and we would not have been able to achieve these results without it.
“Drugs ruin lives and we are dedicated to cracking down on those who choose to deal in Hertfordshire. If you suspect illegal drug supply in your area then please report it to us directly, or anonymously via Crimestoppers. We will take notice and we will act.”
