A SUCCESSFUL drugs raid saw a team of police tear into a South Oxfordshire home.

Armed with a search warrant and protective helmets, Thames Valley Police stormed a property in Chinnor yesterday afternoon.

Sharing images of the operation, including a damaged doorway, the force's South and Vale officers tweeted: "After letting ourselves in we arrested two persons for drugs offences.

"We seized drugs, weapons and cash under #POCA [Proceeds of Crime Act]."

The pair arrested remained in police custody last night.

The raid was part of Operation Stronghold, which tackles serious and organised crime, and Operation Sceptre, targeting knife crime.
