Last weekend, eight men were taken into custody in a pro-active weekend crackdown across the North West as part of Operation Rattle. A 60 year-old man was also questioned after drugs were seized from a house at Peibio Close in Holyhead on Wednesday.

Inspector Owain Llewellyn from Bangor police station, who oversaw the raids, said: “We are determined to keep our communities safe and will continue to provide a visible reassurance and presence. It is vitally important we listen to concerns from our local communities and where necessary take proportionate and positive action. It was abundantly clear from the local response this morning that our action was very well received and further action is planned.”

”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 I cannot emphasise enough the importance of the community sharing their concerns with us.”
