Drugs crackdown in Exeter launched

Police have this week launched a crackdown on drug dealers in Exeter.

A number of raids have been carried out on addresses across the city since Monday.

Devon and Cornwall Police launched Operation Cleft on Monday targeting dangerous drug networks across the city, with 11 arrests so far.

The force says that the crackdown is in response to residents complaints about an increase in drugs sales and use in Exeter.

The aim of the operation is to restrict the supply of Class A drugs by targeting urban gangs who are from places like London, Manchester, Liverpool and the West Midlands.

Arrests and searches have been carried out at addresses throughout the city this week with a significant amount of Cannabis, heroin and cocaine being seized.
