POLICE have arrested three 'young males' after seizing a large haul of suspected class A drugs.

The arrests were made in Oxford city centre last night, and the trio are suspected of being involved in a county lines drug group.

Officers did not specify their ages, but wrote on the TVP Oxford Facebook page early this morning: "Three young males are currently in custody after being arrested for drug offences in Oxford city centre.

"A large quantity of suspected class A drugs have been seized. The males are suspected to be involved in a county lines drug group.

"As ever please don't hesitate to call us if you see any suspicious activity in your area. Thank you for your support."

County lines dealing refers to when drug gangs from large cities expand to smaller towns and cities.

Gangs have been known to recruit vulnerable children and young people to assist with their operations.

Just last week, the force's Oxford drugs taskforce arrested a 'young lad' from Birmingham on suspicion of county lines dealing, as well as a 'young male' from London.
