Inspector Steve Chalcraft of the Horsham neighbourhood policing team said: “We are targeting drug dealers who come into the county to exploit vulnerable people.
“Our action will send a strong message that these criminal activities will not go unchecked.
“Drug misuse can have devastating effects on the local community as well as the person taking the drugs, so I would encourage people to report suspicious activity and tell us if someone they know might be being targeted by drug dealers.”
