Police have taken £2m pounds worth of drugs off the streets of Nottingham in an 18month operation in Broxtowe and Aspley.
During Operation Barnstormer, which started in October 2009, 193 arrests were made, 39 weapons were recovered and drugs like heroin and cocaine were seized.
25 tenants have also had their agreements reviewed or have been evicted for breach of their housing contract.
Sergeant Ian Cresswell, based at Broxtowe police station, said:
"Having a proactive team who can act quickly on community intelligence and carry out the warrants is continuing to have a significantly positive impact across the area.
"Seizing more than £2million in drugs shows we are targeting the right people, and it also reassures local people that we are taking action, which ultimately increases their confidence to give us information."
