Officers seized a pile of drugs while patrolling the streets this weekend.

The officers from the Chelmsford and Maldon Community Policing Team were carrying out "planned" searches in the area.

Following one search, a spokesman for the team said: "Sunday may be a day of rest for some, but not for us. Officers from Chelmsford and Maldon CPT have been busy.

"More drugs and cash seized at a planned search warrant."

A large amount of £20 notes were discovered at the scene of the incident, as well as substantial quantities of cannabis in clear plastic bags, and a few small bags of white powder.

If you have any concern or suspicion of drug dealing in your area, call 101.
