They call it ‘intelligence from the public’ but in reality it means neighbours calling time on drug activity in their communities.
Fenland Police recognise the importance of this source of vital information - and in 48 hours executed three warrants in pursuit of drugs.
In March they praised their neighbourhood policing team who they said "strikes again". This time police said they put together a warrant that was executed with two hours following "intelligence from members of the public".
Two men were arrested for possession to supply Class A and Class B drugs.
"Please continue to help us keep your community safe," said a police spokesman.
