Sergeant Adrian Dack, from Hartlepool Community Safety Team, said: "Yesterday's action has resulted in suspected controlled drugs being recovered and three men being arrested on suspicion of drugs offences.

“We have shown the community that we are still listening and taking positive action to disrupt the sale of controlled drugs, which blights local communities and attracts antisocial behaviour and associated crime. Local residents won't tolerate it and neither will we; we can assure people that there will be more to come from us."
