HOMES have been raided in Guildford as part of a campaign to flush out London drug dealers targeting the town.

Five people have been arrested as part of the raids in the borough as well as in Woking and Surrey Heath yesterday (November 29).

Two men from London were arrested on Wednesday, including a 21-year-old man charged with possession with intent to supply having been discovered with 19 wraps of cocaine. 

An 18-year-old has been charged with possession of a Class B drug and has been bailed until December 12 with a bail condition not to enter Surrey.

Police said a further three people were arrested yesterday at various addresses.

More than 100 officers from Surrey and Sussex Police teamed up with detectives, dog handlers, search teams, rapid entry units, Surrey Police's anti-social behaviour team and drug liaison officers as part of the raids.

They were part of Operation Hearth which aims to stop the supply of Class A drugs from London to Surrey.

Martin Goodwin, Surrey Heath neighbourhood commander inspector, said: "This operation is as a result of careful, painstaking work to draw out those street level dealers who need to be flushed out of our communities."
