"We have taken swift and positive action.
"As a result of this action, we have arrested six people who we believe have caused misery for the local community.
"We are now making sure we work closely with our partner agencies to seek further action against the occupiers of the property."
Five of the men have been released on police bail while officers continue their inquiries.
