Officers carried out raids at an address on Upton Street, where one man was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs, and Apsley Street where another four men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
A quantity of suspected cocaine and a large amount of cash were recovered.
A 33-year-old man has been charged with possession of class A drugs.
He will appear at Teesside Magistrates Court in the new year.
Four other men have also been released under investigation.
Neighbourhood police officers in Redcar have taken part in a Christmas present appeal this year.
All of the officers and PCSO's have purchased various gifts in their own time for all age ranges in order to help children and youths who are suffering depravity and difficult circumstances at this special time of year.
These gifts were delivered to a volunteer at the Salvation Army Church in Guisborough on Friday where they will be wrapped and distributed across our communities to those in need.
The officers involved said that it was very heart warming and humbling to see the amount of gifts provided to the Salvation Army by the general public and all for a very worthy cause.
