Three men were arrested following an early morning drugs raid on a house in Caldicot on Tuesday, Gwent Police has confirmed.
The men were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs after police officers raided the house in Caldicot in the early hours of the morning.
Body-cam footage shows at least six officers gaining entry through the front door of the property and making their way in.
Gwent Police has stated that the raid was carried out following “community concerns” about drug use.
A statement from the force said: “Two men, aged 20 and 29 from Caldicot and a 24-year-old man from Magor, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A controlled drug – cocaine.
“The 24-year-old man from Magor was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply a class B drug – cannabis resin.
“All three remain in police custody.”
The force said that “a quantity of drugs, believed to be class A and B,” were seized and will be sent away for forensic examination and identification. It added that cash was also seized from the address.
“Today’s warrant was carried out following community concerns about drug use,” said Monmouthshire Inspector Nikki Hughes, speaking on Tuesday.
