More than £2 million worth of drugs was uncovered in two Cambridgeshire villages.
Around 22kg of cocaine was found at an address in Willingham on December 10, while a house in Haddenham was also raided.
Officers from the Eastern Region Specialist Operations Unit (ERSOU), supported by Cambridgeshire Police, also recovered seven kilograms of cocaine from a car.
It is estimated the drugs have a street value of more than £2.2 million.
Callum Lenk, 24 of High Street, Haddenham and Jason Lenk, 51 of Balland Fields, Willingham, have both been charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
The pair have been remanded ahead of appearing at Cambridge Crown Court.
Detective Inspector Ian Mawdesley, from ERSOU, said: “This is a significant seizure of Class A drugs and I am glad that we have been successful in preventing these substances from reaching the streets.
