A crackdown on drug dealing has led to six arrests and seizures of a ‘large’ amount of drugs in Esher this week.

Acting on local intelligence, officers from Surrey Police searched homes in Haymeads Drive on Tuesday, May 9 and Farm Road on Thursday, May 11.

Some Class A drugs were seized at the property on Haymeads Drive, along with other drugs paraphernalia, and a 25-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

At the flat in Farm Road, five men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and officers seized a large amount of what is believed to be cannabis, as well as other drugs paraphernalia.

All six of those arrested have been released from custody but remain under investigation.

PC James Early said: “This has been a successful operation made possible by the receipt of intelligence on drug activity from a number of sources. We are working hard to proactively tackle drug dealing throughout Elmbridge and I hope residents can feel reassured that we are taking positive action.”

Elmbridge Neighbourhoods Officers were also in attendance to reassure neighbours and answer any questions.

PC Early said: "I would urge people to continue to play an active part in helping us tackle drug issues. If you have information about any suspicious activity or people you think may be involved in drugs activity please contact Surrey Police on 101."
