Four men have been charged on suspicion of drug supply offences as part of an operation to tackle drug supply in Newport in June.
Quantities of cocaine, cannabis, cash and imitation firearms were seized during Operation Triton, which saw officers carry out warrants at four Newport addresses on Wednesday 8 June.
Four men – aged 34, 27, 22 and 22 – all from Rogerstone, Newport were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs - cocaine – and conspiracy to supply a controlled drug of class B - cannabis.
They were later charged with these offences and appeared at Newport Magistrates Court on Friday 10 June.
Detective Inspector Steven Thomas, who led the operation, said:
"Tackling drug supply and associated criminal activity is a priority for us.
"Illegal drugs have no place in society, and we’ve taken a quantity of class A and class B drugs off the streets of Newport.
“These arrests send a strong reminder to those involved in drug supply in and around the Gwent area. We will continue to target those who involve themselves in these illegal activities in our communities."
