The investigation to identify and arrest those responsible remains ongoing.
Detective Sergeant Jason Marchant, of Harrogate CID, said: ”This was clearly a sophisticated operation run by professional criminals.
“This seizure has removed a significant amount of drugs from the supply chain.
“I want the raid to send a clear message to anyone involved with the production and supply of illegal drugs that their activities will not be tolerated. North Yorkshire Police will act quickly when we receive intelligence to disrupt criminal behaviour at every level.”
DS Marchant added: “If you can help to identify those responsible for this operation please contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.”
