Two drugs raids have led to the arrest of 24 people in south London.
Officers from the Met Police's Specialist Crime unit executed warrants at a total of 25 addresses in Lambeth and Southwark on Wednesday and yesterday.
The early-morning raids led to officers recovering a quantity of class A and B drugs, including 600 wraps of what officers believe to be cocaine and heroin, and over £10,000 at the addresses.
Nine of those who were arrested have since been charged with drug-related offences.
Det Insp Steve Crockett from Met Police, said: “Drug supply and the violence that it often causes is rightly a huge concern for communities, and tackling crime and making the streets safer for law-abiding people is a priority across the Met. “Over just two days, we have visited more than two dozen addresses, taken a number of suspects into custody and seized a large amount of drugs which was destined to be sold on London’s streets to vulnerable people, to generate criminal profits."
