North Wales Police’s continued campaign targeting those who supply and distribute controlled drugs in Denbighshire continued today when local Police executed a Misuse of Drugs Act search warrant in Edward Henry Street Rhyl and seized a substantial quantity of cash and drugs paraphernalia.

Sgt William Jones at Rhyl Police Station said, “Following the execution of a search warrant at an address in Rhyl, a 25 year old man from the Merseyside area was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs and is currently detained awaiting interview. Our focus of targeting those few who cause the most harm will continue as we are determined to keep our communities safe. Today’s action is also aimed at those bringing drugs into our communities from outside north Wales and is in line with the force’s Operation Scorpion which is directly targeting serious and organised crime.”

Possession and distribution of controlled drugs will not be tolerated in our communities and we will continue to take positive, robust action. However we can’t tackle this problem alone and key to all our work, and that of our partners, is intelligence and we cannot emphasise enough the importance of the community sharing their concerns with us. Information can be passed to police via our web chat or phoning 101. If you’d rather pass information anonymously then phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
