Response teams and Safer Neighbourhood officers worked alongside detectives during the operation, which started Monday, November 14 and finished on Sunday, January 22.
Six searches were carried out at properties in the area; four were in New Mills, one in Glossop and one in Gamesley. Officers recovered suspected Class A and Class B drugs, including cannabis, heroin, cocaine and amphetamine.
Detective Chief Inspector Tracy Lewis said: “The operation was set up to act on information gathered from the local community and target those suspected of involvement in illegal drug use and supply.
“Due to the recognised link between illegal drug activities and other offences such as burglary and car crime, we will always take positive action against drug dealers. The operation was all about helping to reduce crime in the area and to keep our area safe”
Inspector Gareth Meadows, local police inspector for the Glossop and New Mills areas said: “Classified drugs are illegal for a reason; they limit the lives and opportunities of those who take them and can have a harmful effect on the wider community. The only people who stand to benefit are those who sell them for their own profit.
“I aim to ensure that local people have the confidence that the police in Glossop and New Mills will act on information received about such criminals and take action.This operation has led to some good results and much of this success is due to intelligence the public has provided. I am grateful for this and would urge anyone with information to contact us.”
