The arrests were made during a six hour swoop by the police in areas noted for drug peddling and mobile phone snatching.

Six of the suspects were found with leaves suspected to be Indian hemp and they will be put before court.

They are Yusif Aziz, Anthony Ezel, Mohammed Awal, Abubakari Zuk, Yaw Attah and Baro James.

The others will be screened for related crimes in the area.
