Police launch Class A drugs blitz

PUBLISHED January 12, 2005

Police in England and Wales plan to close down drug dens as part of a three-month crackdown on Class A drugs.

Officers from 32 forces will use undercover operations, stop-and-search and surveillance to target dealers of drugs including cocaine and heroin.
New laws have made it easier for police to seize dealers' assets and close down the sites used to sell drugs.
