A man was arrested in Watford on Thursday, April 30 on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
The 31-year-old man was arrested on Princes Avenue, Watford after three warrants were carried out by the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU).
Two other arrests were made; a 20-year-old man was arrested at a property in Griffin Court, Luton, a 32-year-old man was arrested in Kenilworth Road, Luton.
The arrests were in conjunction with a series of proactive operations carried out by the ERSOU this month – overall, more than 70 kilograms of Class A drugs worth £3million and seven firearms have been seized.
Detective chief inspector Trevor Davidson, from ERSOU, said: “Unfortunately serious and organised crime hasn’t stopped as a result of the coronavirus lockdown, so it’s important that we don’t stop either.
“The significant discovery of six dangerous weapons this morning shows just how vital our work is at this time and we’re committed to continuing to keep people safe by tackling those crimes which cause some of the most serious harm.
“In Bedfordshire alone in the last month we’ve also seized more than 70 kilograms of Class A drugs which will have a very real impact on the drugs supply, further protecting our communities.”
