Two men were arrested after police discovered Class A and B drugs, machetes, a knuckle duster, an air rifle and more than £10,000 during a raid in Cambridgeshire.
The weapons, cash and drugs were discovered by officers during an operation that aims to tackle organised drug crime in Cambridge.
Three houses and two cars were searched during the operation - in Wellington Street and Teversham Drift in Cambridge, and Walnut Tree Way in Impington.
A 32-year-old and a 49-year-old, both from the area, were arrested by Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
