10 held in drug blitz.

Byline: FRANK HURLEY

TEN people are facing 200 drugs charges after a blitz of police heroin and cocaine raids yesterday.

Cops smashed into four flats in simultaneous swoops in the Govanhill area of Glasgow.

More than 100 unarmed uniform and CID officers took part in the operation.

At 8am they broke down doors and burst into flats in Calder Street, Allison Street and Daisy Street, arresting seven people.

Three people were arrested in a follow-up sting two hours later.

Police say the 10 did not work as a group but include major dealers.

Some are charged with drug trafficking offences.

The raids coincided with the end of the Crimestoppers "Drug Dealers Don't Care - Do You?" campaign.

Supt Mike Dean said: "This sends out a strong message to dealers that they are being watched and will be caught."
