Inspector Steve Rees, from Birmingham North Police, who led the operation, said: 'We had a fantastic response from the people of Birmingham following No Deal.
'This included increased community intelligence coming through to us and even firearms being handed in.
'We will continue to work with our partners to try to eradicate drugs from the city's streets and help those individuals who wish to break their drug addiction.
'We are very aware that by taking action against a number of individuals, this opens the door to the next wave of dealers.
'We will continue to do everything we can to try to stop this happening and take action against those criminals.
' We need the public's continued help and would encourage anyone with information about dealing or drug taking in their area to call us.
'I hope we have shown that we take all information very seriously and will act upon it.'
It is understood that an action will be taken against several of the dealers under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
