DEAL drugs in Huddersfield and you will be caught and jailed.
That's the stark warning from police after the biggest drugs raid in Huddersfield's history.
The three-day operation led to the arrest of more than 40 suspected dealers in the `war against drugs'.
Det Chief Insp John Gilbody, the head of West Yorkshire drugs and organised crime group, said: "It's been a massive success.
"Over the last three days, as a result of a long, intelligence-led investigation aimed at disrupting organised criminality in Kirklees, we have searched some 56 premises and arrested 43 people.
"To date 35 have been charged and 20 remanded in custody."
He said more than £75,000 in cash had been recovered and `significant' amounts of cocaine, heroin and cannabis had been seized, along with a firearm, nine high-powered prestige vehicles like BMWs, and two cannabis-growing units.
"I think the figures speak for themselves on how successful it's been."
Det Chief Insp Gilbody added the raids were part of listening to what communities wanted.
He said time and time again officers were told that drugs were blighting certain areas.
So nearly two years ago officers began collecting intelligence.
This was really stepped up in the last 12 months - and is still going on.
Det Chief Insp Gilbody continued: "The message to the dealers is: Deal drugs on the streets of Kirklees and you will be caught and you will go to prison.
"The team have put an awful lot of effort in and it's rewarding from our perspective and it's rewarding to know that harm will be reduced in these communities."
But this operation is also aimed at helping people break their addictions.
He said over the last three days 20 people had already started a treatment programme and many more would follow.
Earlier this month, officers swooped on `crack houses' when 47 people were arrested and closure notices were served using anti-social behaviour legislation on 22 addresses.
More than 300 officers were involved in the whole operation with detectives from the Drugs and Organised Crime Unit receiving support from the Kirklees District Drugs Team, Operations Support Division and Neighbourhood Policing Teams.
Det Chief Insp Gilbody added the police wanted to continue to work with the public.
