Police officers recently seized Cannabis and arrested a man in Street during a 24 hour crack-down across the district this week.
Arrests were made and various Class A and B drugs were also seized in Shepton Mallet, Yeovil and East Coker, where a number of cannabis plants were found in various stages of growth.
Four drug warrants were carried out over the course of the 24 hours.
Throughout the course of the 24 hours police also made arrests in the areas on suspicion of biking theft, burglary and criminal damage as well as for non-payment of fines.
Police horses also patrolled in Yeovil during the day to provide a high visibility policing presence.
Inspector Jamie Rees said: "This has been a very successful day of action. We carried out a number of warrants from the early hours of the morning with teams looking at a range of offences, such as drugs offences, theft and burglary.
"The arrests have included arrests for non-payment of fines and for failing to appear at court.
"All these offences have had an impact on a victim somewhere down the line and we are determined to bring those responsible to justice.
"These days of action are a great way to expand upon the work already taking place on a daily basis.
He explained: "It is part of the latest Operation Relentless campaign which is still ongoing across the force and has included a wide range of proactive crime prevention work as well as carrying out hundreds of warrants."
