Two knives and drug paraphernalia were seized from Waverley Lodge, while cannabis and drug paraphernalia were found at the house in Alban Avenue.

One man was at home in Alban Avenue while Waverley Lodge was empty when officers raided the property.

New St Albans chief inspector Stuart Cheek said: “Although we didn’t make any arrests, today’s operation was about disrupting people we believe are involved in drugs, acting on information from members of the public as well as safeguarding individuals."

He added: "Please continue to report any suspicious drug activity to us and we will act on it. However, please bear in mind that it does sometimes take time as we have to find other sources and in this case, apply for a warrant from the magistrates’ court. We will continue to carry out these warrants to make it difficult for anyone involved in drugs to operate in St Albans.”
