Two more people have been arrested during a fruitful police crackdown on anti-social behaviour and drug activity in Ipswich.
During one raid today officers seized a large quantity of cash from a property and they believe it to be the proceeds of crime.
Operation Woven was launched last month to tackle gangs in the town and to prevent young people from getting involved with criminals.
It has resulted in more than 40 arrests, mostly related to drug offences.
Superintendent Kerry Cutler, head of policing in Ipswich, has said of the operation: “Suffolk Police will continue to pursue, disrupt and arrest individuals or groups bringing criminality and anti-social behaviour to the streets of our town.
“However, through the multi-agency work we are committed to seeking ways to divert young people from becoming involved in criminality.
“We want to prevent them from falling into the trappings of a life of crime, which if they are exposed to at a young age can become increasingly difficult to break free from.”
