Police have seized houses, drugs, and cash during a series of raids targeting drug dealers throughout metropolitan and regional WA.
Almost $1.4 million of assets have been frozen as a result of the weekend raids.
More than 150 police officers executed 58 search warrants and arrested 18 people, including 3 alleged drug traffickers, as part of operation strike force Katana .
Officers also uncovered three clandestine drug labs.
Detective Superintendent Charlie Craver says they have laid 124 charges and expect that number to rise.
He says a variety of drugs were found including methylamphetamines, cannabis and heroin.
Detective Superintendent Charlie Carver from the Serious and Organised Crime Division has urged anyone with information about people manufacturing or dealing drugs to tell police.
The community of WA should have no tolerance for drug dealing in their neighbourhood, not here, not now, not ever, he said.
These drug dealers profit from the misery they create in the community.
Drugs destroy families, drugs lead to crime, and ultimately drugs do kill people.
