Two men have been arrested for separate offences after police visited flats in Norwich twice within the space of hours.
Officers were called to a flat in Berners Close, near Mile Cross, on the morning of Friday, January 10, after receiving reports of ongoing drug activity.
A man in his 60s was originally arrested for obstructing an officer after he took exception to his flat being searched.
He was later arrested again - this time on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs - after police discovered him to be in possession of a large quantity of cash.
There were also signs of drug use at the flat.
