POLICE seized drugs, hundreds of pounds in cash and an eight-inch hunting knife following a raid on a flat in Ely last week.
The raid took place at a property in Abbotts Way on Friday afternoon, with eight officers, led by Sector Inspector Andrew Bartlett, swooping on the flat after intelligence gathered by police suggested that people living at the address were involved in dealing drugs.
After smashing through the door, which had two industrial sized bolts fixed to the back, police burst into the flat and arrested two men.
One man was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs with intent to supply, the other male for being concerned in the supply of drugs.
After the arrests were made, police conducted a thorough search of the flat with everything from curtains and carpets to sofas and lampshades pored over.
The searches turned up a quantity of class A drugs along with assorted paraphernalia and digital weighing scales.
