Main article content
Three arrests and around £200,000 worth of goods have been seized following an operation in Farnham on Tuesday (15 December).
Officers from Surrey Police carried out warrants at four addresses during the early hours in connection with the supply of Class A drugs and money laundering.
The operation resulted in the arrests of:
- a 33 year old man on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, conspiracy to produce and supply Class B drugs and conspiracy to acquire/use/possess stolen property
- a 27 year old man on suspicion of handling stolen goods, conspiracy to supply Class B drugs and conspiracy to acquire/use/possess stolen property
- a 27 year old woman for using/possessing criminal property
All three have been released under investigation while enquiries remain ongoing.
In addition, an estimated £200,000 worth of goods, including cars, designer bags and jewellery, was seized.
The warrants formed part of an intelligence-led operation following months of planning to disrupt drug dealing in Surrey.
Detective Inspector Matt Chapman said: “We won’t tolerate this kind of criminality. Nobody wants drug dealing in their community as it often brings with it associated crime such as theft and anti-social behaviour.
“We will continue to work with our partners and neighbouring police forces to continue to target drug dealers but we need the public’s help.
"Anyone who has any information about suspected drug dealing should contact us.”

- Lots of visitors bringing items such as T.V's or bikes but leaving empty handed
- Lone/vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address.

- Time, date and place
- Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour
- Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing
- Direction they travelling to and from
