Seven arrested in drug raids
Police raid
Drugs, stolen property and money were recovered
Seven people have been arrested in Lancashire after raids on the homes of suspected drug dealers.

Eight search warrants were executed by Lancashire Police in Preston, as part of Operation Nimrod.

More than 50 officers took part in the raids, early on Monday morning, and recovered drugs, stolen property and money.

Seven people are being questioned in connection with the supply of class A drugs.

Detective Chief Inspector Graham Gardner said: "Criminals who continue to deal heroin and crack cociane in Preston need to be aware that raids of this nature are daily business for police.

"Those dealing drugs will be arrested and put before the courts."
