Two people have been arrested after police raided an address in Uttoxeter this morning.

Officers searched Chaffinch Drive around 8am, taking a 40-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman into custody on suspicion of possession.

A quantity of Class A drugs were also seized.

A second raid also took place at Blackthorn Road in Stapenhill, Burton around 11am. No arrests have been made and nothing was found.

The action is part of a 50 day operation by Staffordshire Police, targeting known and suspected criminals.

Chief Inspector Rob Neeson, commander of the East Staffordshire local policing team, said: "A swift and professional response from our officers has seen two arrests made and two more known drug locations shut down.

"50-50 continues apace and hopefully criminals will start to wonder who is next as we're covering the whole of Staffordshire and a wide variety of criminal activities."
