WEAPONS and drugs were found during two police raids in Huddersfield.
A firing pistol and eight knives and swords were found at a property in Arnold Street in Birkby where officers also seized cocaine and cannabis worth a street value of £500.
Police also targeted suspected dealers in Sufton Street – also in Birkby – and recovered cannabis worth more than £8,000.
A 29-year-old man and a 28-year-old man were arrested in connection with the raids on Wednesday afternoon and were later released on police bail.
Police also seized 200 grams of cocaine which is estimated to be worth £7,50O in a raid in Cleckheaton yesterday.
A 19-year-old man was arrested and released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Police believe around £100,000 worth of drugs have been taken off the streets of Kirklees since Monday.
The series of raids have tied in with National Drugs Week.
Det Chief Insp Dave Knopwood, crime manager for Kirklees, said: “The public understand the problem drugs in our society cause.
“These operations will hopefully show the community that police understand this and gives them confidence in their local police to tackle this issue which affects their day to day lives.
“I would make an urgent plea to anyone with drugs-related information to Dob in a Dealer now.”
Police throughout Kirklees are targeting known dealers of Class A drugs.
Police have already smashed their way into drugs dens in Netherton, Lindley, Cleckheaton and Dewsbury.
It is hoped that by cutting the supply and reducing demand, incidents of crime such as burglary and theft will be reduced.
So far 35 people have been drugs tested and seven were positive for illegal substances.
A further 12 people have signed up to the Drugs Intervention Programme (DIP) to access help and support for their addictions.
Rob Buchanan, team leader at DIP, said: “The reality is we’re not going to stop everybody from taking drugs.
“But there is a lot we can do and have been doing to help those who want it.
“Even if we can give them a break it may encourage them to stay away from drugs in the long term.
“There is a wide range of support available for people wanting to kick their habits.
“We can give advice about treatment and ways back into work so they do not need to commit crime to fund drug use.”
Anyone with any information about drug dealers is asked to call police on 01484 436609 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
