A woman has been arrested as Operation Gravity continues to take positive action against those involved in drug dealing in Norfolk.

Officers were called to a disturbance in Canterbury Place at 2.25am this morning.

On arrival officers searched an address and found a number of items linked to drug dealing activity including hundreds of wraps and more than 40 plastic chocolate egg centres which are commonly used to transport drugs.

A woman, aged in her 30s and from the Norwich area, has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug. She remains in police custody to be questioned later today.

During the incident criminal damage was caused to another property in what we believe is a case of mistaken identity.

Chief Superintendent Dave Marshall said: 'We received 26 calls from concerned members of the public about this incident alone and criminal damage was caused at a second property in what we believe is a case of mistaken identity.

'This goes a long way to show the affect drug related crime can have on our communities and we will not tolerate it.
