Officers carried out warrants at two addresses in Kempston Hardwick in the early hours of Wednesday (18 October) morning.
Weapons including knives and a knuckle-duster were seized during searches of the properties, along a quantity of suspected Class B drugs, cannabis plants, cash, and drug dealing paraphernalia.
A man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of possession of suspected Class B drugs, being concerned in the supply of drugs, and possession of an offensive weapon. Another man in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and possession of a bladed article.
Both men have been charged and bailed under strict conditions ahead of future court appearances.
Superintendent Rachael Glendenning, who led the operation, said: “This activity is the latest result in our ongoing efforts to disrupt the supply and distribution of illegal drugs in Bedfordshire.
“We know that drugs are often the driving force behind much of the violence and criminality we encounter, so we will continue to work tirelessly to target the source of these issues and take strong action against those involved.“
