POLICE have arrested three suspected drug dealers after carrying out a number of raids this morning.

Officers targeted five homes across Fleetwood as part of Operation Nimrod.

Addresses in Hazeldene Road, Whinfield Avenue, Wingrove Road, Southfleet Place and London Street were all raided as police targeted Class B drugs, including mephedrone and amphetamine.

One man was arrested in Hazeldene Road and two others in Wingrove Road.

Det Chief Insp Vicki Evans, of Lancashire Police, said: “We are committed to taking drugs off our streets.

“Most burglaries, car crime and robberies are carried out to fund a drug habit and drug usage also brings with it anti-social behaviour which can make other residents’ lives a misery.”
