Officers went on to arrest a 31 year old male.

John Finney, aged 31, from Cheadle, has been charged with possession of Class A and Class B drugs and has been bailed to appear at North Staffordshire Magistrates' Court in Newcastle-Under-Lyme.

The arrests are part of Operation Nemesis, the force's ongoing drive to tackle drug dealers and bring them to justice.

PC Dave Stubbs, from Cheadle Local Policing Team, said: "Our commitment to tackling drug dealers and those who benefit from such crime is ongoing.

"These actions send out a clear message to the communities we serve.

"Staffordshire Police will not tolerate drug misuse and we will take dealers and their associates off the streets.

"We cannot continue this work without the help and support of local people and the information they provide about crime in their community is imperative.

"As a result of information received about these properties and the people associated with them we have made one arrest and seized a quantity of Class A and Class B drugs from the address.

"A second person has also received a Cannabis warning.

"I would ask that the public continue to let us know about such issues so we can take the appropriate action.

"Together with our partners we will continue to take a tough stance on criminals involved in drugs and related anti-social behaviour."

Following the arrests local officers carried out high-visibility patrols and delivered information leaflets to reassure residents and businesses.

Anyone with information about drug dealing can call Staffordshire Police on 101, contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 111 555, or go online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
