Raids on two houses in Cardigan, as well as a house in Newport, Pembrokeshire, have resulted in no arrests so far.
A drugs-bust on a house on High Street, Cardigan, led to the seizing of cannabis and a white powder.
But the occupant has not been arrested, and will instead be voluntarily interviewed for possession of class A and class B substances.
And a second raid in Bro Teifi, Cardigan, didn’t find any evidence of drug use or supply.
A third house in Pembrokeshire was also raided, which led to officers finding cannabis and a sum of money.
Dyfed-Powys officers used a chainsaw to gain access to a house in Maes y Mynydd, in Newport, Pembrokeshire, where they found “a quantity of cannabis” as well as £3,000 in cash.
But the occupant of the house was not home, according to the force. They are still trying to locate the individual.

Simultaneous raids in Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire
A spokesperson for Dyfed-Powys said “Police simultaneously raided three homes in response to concerns around drug use in the community.
“Dyfed-Powys Police officers targeted a house in Newport, Pembrokeshire, and two houses in Cardigan on Thursday, June 18.
“Entry was gained by chainsaw at the first home in Maes y Mynydd, Newport, at around 9.30am, where a quantity of cannabis and more than £3,000 were seized.
“The occupant was not at home, but enquiries are underway to locate them for interview.
“The second warrant was carried out in High Street, Cardigan, where cannabis and white powder were found and seized.
“The occupant will be voluntarily interviewed with regards possession of class A and class B substances in the coming days.”
No evidence of drugs use or supply
“A home in Bro Teifi, Cardigan, was also searched, with no evidence of drug use or supply. “Positive engagement was carried out with the community,” the spokesperson continued.
T/Inspector Kaamil Garnie said: “These warrants were executed in direct response to community concerns and the emerging threat of class A drugs in South Ceredigion.
“We have reviewed information received from the community, and have monitored the situation over the past few months.
“It was vital that we took action to reassure communities that we are listening to their concerns and acting on information supplied, as well as to disrupt the use and supply of illegal substances in the area.”
