Another Holyhead arrest in drugs raids

A Holyhead man has been arrested in the latest in a series of drugs raids across north west Wales.

The man in his twenties is being questioned by detectives after class B controlled drugs were seized from an address in the Treseifion estate on Tuesday.

It follows three arrests in raids in Bangor on Friday – two women in their 40s and a 25 year-old man from Merseyside have been released on bail but remain under investigation.

Sergeant Sara Evans, who oversaw the Holyhead search, said: ”The feedback from the local people was very positive and it was rewarding to see the impact our action had today. Further searches are planned.”

”Our goal of targeting those few in our communities who cause the most harm will continue and in line with the forces’ Operation Scorpion is directly targeting those involved in serious and organised crime.  Possession and distribution of controlled drugs will not be tolerated and we will continue to take positive, robust action.”

Meanwhile, police in Bangor said Friday’s raids were all linked to Operation Rattle, which is aimed at targeting drug supply from organised crime gangs based on Merseyside.
