Police found more than 100 wraps of suspected Class A drugs as officers carried out a series of drug busts across Borehamwood.

As part of an operation to tackle county lines, properties in Haggerston Road, Manor Way, and Tempsford Avenue, were raided last Thursday.

At a home in Tempsford Way, police seized suspected Class A drugs, £500 in cash, and a mobile phone.

Police believe the address is used for cuckooing; a term police use to describe a County Lines drug gang who take over the home of a vulnerable person as a base for drug dealing.

County Lines is the name given to describe drug dealing which involves criminal networks taking their activity from cities into smaller towns and rural areas. It often involves the exploitation of children or those with mental health or addiction problems.

Nothing was seized at the addresses in Haggerston Road and Manor Way.

The warrants were carried out by a specialist police team, Op Mantis, and were supported by Op Scorpion teams.

• A 27 year old man and a 19 year old woman, both from London – were arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply. They have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
