Northumbria Police have charged 15 people after a series of raids to tackle drug dealing and organised crime.
The co-ordinated strikes targeted properties across Newcastle and North Tyneside.
They were part of a long-running investigation into an organised group sourcing and dealing cocaine and amphetamine.
The investigation, which focuses on the Walker and Longbenton areas, has seen between £1.5million and £1.75million worth of drugs seized.
Chief Superintendent Gary Calvert, Newcastle Area Command, said: “Drugs have a devastating impact both on individuals involved in use and supply and the neighbourhoods where they live, through related crime and disorder.
“Our Neighbourhood Policing teams are committed to working closely with residents and our partner agencies to ensure those causing the most harm in the community are dealt with.”
The raids were carried out on Wednesday, September 19.
