Three men have been arrested as part of a proactive investigation into the supply of drugs in Gloucester.
Officers from the Force Crime Operations Team located a car in Gloucester yesterday (Thursday) following intelligence gathering into the owner's involvement in drugs supply.
The driver of the car was arrested and two men were later arrested after searches were conducted at a property linked to the driver.
Searches at the property resulted in cash and a toilet full of wraps of class A drugs being recovered. It is believed that the men had attempted to flush the drugs down the toilet but were unsuccessful.
A 19-year-old man from South Woodford, 40-year-old man from Stockwell in London and 44-year-old man of no fixed abode were arrested on suspicion of the supply of class A drugs and remain in police custody.
The arrests were part of Operation Krivichi which is a dedicated operation targeting a London based county line.
