Three people in St Albans and Borehamwood have been arrested after police raided houses across the county.

Officers said they carried out warrants on July 22 in an effort to target county line gangs.

A 22-year-old man from St Albans, a 59-year-old woman from St Albans and 24-year-old woman from Borehamwood were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Officers said they were all released whilst investigations continue.

This investigation follows two arrests made on June 20 and July 2 after officers raided two separate addresses in Stevenage and found crack cocaine and heroin.

Detective Sergeant Jon Leak, who leads Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Op Mantis team, said: "We are constantly working to target those who are involved in county lines drug dealing and other gang activities.

"Although Hertfordshire does not have a major problem with county lines, it is a problem that has continued to grow across the country and we are determined to prevent it spreading into Hertfordshire."
