Heroin, cash and even a modified air weapon were all seized during a string of police raids last week.

Homes in Dartford and Crayford were among those targeted during early morning raids on April 18, as part of an ongoing crackdown by Kent Police on knife crime and associated offences including the supply of drugs.

In Ladywood Road, Dartford, officers recovered substances believed to be heroin and cannabis and arrested a 41-year-old man in connection with the supply of Class A drug.

Meanwhile, a search of a bedroom at a home in Heath Road, Crayford led to the discovery of more illegal substances. Here, a 48-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing heroin.

Detective Superintendent Pat Holmes of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said: "These latest arrests and searches were part of targeted day of action to further crackdown on the supply of drugs and those we suspect may be linked to the use or carrying of weapons.

"We remain absolutely committed and determined in our efforts to take robust and proactive action against people who choose to break the law and to ensure communities across Kent remain safe."
