County Lines: six arrested in Blaenau Ffestiniog raids

North Wales Police

Six people have been arrested in a series of drugs raids in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Detectives carried out searches on nine properties in the town as part of a long running investigation into County Lines activity linking North Wales and Merseyside.

Class B controlled drugs and drugs were seized during the warrants on Thursday and Friday (29th – 30th October).

On the Wirral, four people were arrested and a stolen vehicle was seized in raids on six addresses by Merseyside Police on Thursday.

Inspector Lisa Jones from North Wales Police said the joint investigation, which began in March, was aimed at disrupting an established drug supply network.

She added: ”I am determined to target the few who cause the most harm by bringing drugs into our communities from outside the North Wales area.”

Earlier in the inquiry, two cannabis factories containing over a hundred plants were seized in St Helens, leading to four arrests for possessing Class A drugs and production. The suspects are now on bail, but remain under investigation.

Detective Inspector Peter Stephenson from Merseyside Police said: ”We remain committed to targeting the people responsible for serious and organised crime including drug supply.”

”We have been working closely with colleagues in North Wales Police as part of this lengthy and ongoing investigation and I can reassure the communities of Merseyside that the force will continue its fight against those involved in drug dealing to make our neighbourhoods safer for everyone.”

”I would also ask that people to continue to come forward with information so we can continue to take action.”
