Following the successful ‘Operation Zeus’ by North Wales Police earlier this week, in which 30 properties were raided across North Wales and 15 people arrested, further proactive action continued this morning as North Wales Police executed a Misuse Of Drugs Act search warrant in Belmont Street, Bangor.
Police Officers seized a quantity of what they believe to be class B controlled drugs, cash and related paraphernalia and arrested three people.
Two men from Merseyside aged 54 and 17 and a 46 year old local man were all arrested for possession with intent to supply class B controlled drugs and money laundering. All remain in custody awaiting interview.
Inspector Owain Llewellyn at Bangor Police Station who oversaw today’s operation said “Our commitment to rid our communities of those who possess and supply controlled drugs is our priority in line with ‘Operation Scorpion’ is directly targeting serious and organised crime. Today’s action under Operation Rattle is a continuation of that process and we are determined to keep our communities safe. It is vitally important we listen to concerns and where necessary take proportionate action. You say – We do.”
“Possession and distribution of controlled drugs will not be tolerated 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 I cannot emphasise enough the importance of the community sharing their concerns with us.
