Thames Valley Police have arrested eight people after seizing a large quantity of drugs, money and weapons from properties across West Berkshire and South Oxfordshire.

On Tuesday, March 26, the warrants were carried out at six addresses under Section 8 of the Police and Criminal Act.

The police investigation has been underway after receiving intelligence from members of the public about the drug supply.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Bill Sykes said: “There is a lot work going on behind the scenes to help tackle the possession and supply of drugs across the Thames Valley.

"I hope these warrants demonstrate that we take reports of drug related offences seriously and will take action to deal with criminality in your local area."

The arrests have been made for a variety of offences concerning the supply of drugs, and all suspects have been released on conditional bail.

Members of the public who may have any information about the supply of drugs across the region have been encouraged to report it to 101 or through the online reporting on the Thames Valley Police website.
