POLICE have arrested six people in the Abingdon area on suspicion of drug dealing.

In a Facebook post shared by Thames Valley Police this afternoon, the force said a 'large quantity of Class A drugs and cash were recovered' during the operation.

No further details were given about where and when the arrests took place, but several residents who commented on the post congratulated officers on a job 'well done.'

The force continues to crack down on drug crime and has reported on several drug-related arrests this week alone.

On Tuesday a woman was arrested in Bicester, on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

Officers seized £1,000 in cash and suspected Class A drugs in connection with the arrest.

On Monday a large knife was seized as police carried out a drugs-related raid in Didcot, after which a 21-year-old man from London was arrested on suspicion of drug supply.

Tomorrow a man is due in court, charged with possession of a controlled Class B drug, after 223 grams of cannabis was discovered at a property in Cowley.

The Abingdon arrests were part of the force's Operation Stronghold campaign, which fights organised crime.
