Five people have been arrested by Hertfordshire Police as part of an investigation into organised crime and the supply of drugs within the county.
Officers from the Constabulary’s serious and organised crime command executed warrants under Operation Relentless, targeting individuals that have links to organised crime and drug supply networks.
Ian Harris, 49, from Pentland Road, Bushey was charged with conspiracy to supply controlled drugs and remanded into custody.
The other four arrest include a 32 year old man from Bushey, who was arrested on suspicion possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.
A 56 year old man from Watford on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis.
A 45 year old man from Abbots Langley on suspicion conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.
And a 36 year old woman from Hertford on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply, profiting from or concealing proceeds of crime.
Superintendent Matt Thompson, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s serious and organised crime command, said: “We conducted Operation Relentless in partnership with the NCA, Europol and other forces across the UK and Europe making a series of important arrests, seizing cash and drugs, as well as gathering huge amount of intelligence on organised crime groups operating across the continent.
“This was an effective collaborative operation working with colleagues in various agencies at local, regional and national level to disrupt organised crime groups operating across borders. This joined up approach means we can target criminals impacting on our county even if they are based in other countries.”
