Three people have been arrested after raids took place this morning (November 21st) where drugs and money were seized from addresses in Prudhoe and Greenside.
A 31-year-old man, a 53-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man, have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.
£30,000 in cash, believed to have been gained through criminal activity, and around £2,000 worth of Class A drugs have also been seized.
The raids took place at addresses in Brettonby Avenue, in Stocksfield, Castle Lea, Masters Crescent and Moorside in Prudhoe and Rose Terrace in Greenside.
A decision's expected on whether a public inquiry will be held into plans for the redevelopment of Prudhoe town centre. The Duke of Northumberland wants to spend £30m on the town, creating a supermarket and multi-story car park.
Northumberland County Council granted planning permission in June. The scheme has attracted widespread opposition from many traders.
