The team posted on Facebook: "This Morning, 21th January, Officers from your local NPT conducted three intelligence-led drugs raids in the Yeadon & Rawdon area.
"All three properties contained drugs paraphernalia & signs of recent drugs use and/or dealing.
"A quantity of Class-B drugs were also recovered, which will now be destroyed.
As a result of this operation, those drugs will not be finding their way onto the local streets & this sends a clear message: if you are involved in the supply of illegal drugs, you can expect a knock at your door (or in this case, a circular saw)."
