Two men have been arrested after police drug raids in Newbridge on Wednesday morning (September 16).
Police carried out a drugs warrant at a property on Ebbw View Terrace and a property on Central Avenue, Pantside.
Police say the two raids were unrelated.
Following the raid at Ebbw View Terrace, a 34-year-old man from Newbridge was arrested on suspicion of smuggling class A drugs, as well as being involved in the supply of Class A drugs.
Police said a quantity of drugs, believed to be class A and class B, were seized during the raid and will be sent away for forensic examination.
Following the raid at Central Avenue, a 58-year-old man from Pantside was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of a Class A drug, as well as importing Class A drugs.
