The warrants were carried out at three separate addresses across town just after 7am in Banbury.

Police seized some cocaine during the service of one of the warrants at an address in Evenlode, Banbury. As a result of the warrant being served at the Evenlode address police arrested two men, aged 31 and 21 and two women, aged 38 and 23, for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

Police also seized a significant amount of cash during the serving of another one of the warrants in Evenlode, Banbury. As a result a 23-year-old woman is being interviewed today in connection to offences under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Police seized some cannabis when a third drugs warrant was carried out at an address in Ferriston, Banbury. As a result police found a man who was wanted for disqualified driving and a public order offence. It's unclear if he was arrested by police.

A total of five arrests were made by police across the three warrants, one further person had a voluntary interview and another was issued with a fixed penalty notice at scene. PCSO’s are in Evenlode and Ferriston this afternoon (Wednesday May 19) providing community reassurance and engagement.

The arrests were the third drugs related arrests made by police in Banbury this week.
