Police arrested 22 people across the district last week during a day of action for 'Operation Relentless'.

A total of 12 warrants were executed over the course of the day in Yeovil, Crewkerne, Frome, Shepton Mallet, Chard and Glastonbury.

12 of the arrests made were in relation to suspected drugs offences while three arrests were made on suspicion of theft. One other person was arrested for breach of the peace, and other arrests related to breach of bail, suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle and metal theft.

Police have seized a number of items including jewellery, bicycles and electrical equipment as well as a quantity of drugs such as cannabis and ketamine.

Officers also visited all the scrap yards in the Mendip area to check they were complying with the appropriate legislation in an effort to stem the tide of metal theft in our area, though no issues were identified at any of the yards.

Chief Supt Nikki Watson said: "We are very pleased with the results from the warrants and other activities that have been carried out.

"It is very beneficial to hold dedicated days of action of this type to focus extra attention and resources onto some of the crime areas we also deal with as part of our normal day-to-day work.

"We also hope it will encourage people to come forward and let us know if they believe any drugs offences, or any other offences, are taking place in their area."
