Suspected drugs house closed in Maesgeirchen

North Wales Police

A house in Bangor believed to have been used as a drugs den has been closed off by police.

Officers raided the property on the Maesgerichen estate last Friday in an ongoing high-profile crackdown on drug-related crime in Gwynedd and Anglesey.

No arrests were and no drugs were seized in the search – but the address was cordoned off by a temporary closure order to prevent further use as a suspected drugs house.

The latest action followed two raids on Anglesey last week, which led to four arrests near Benllech and a further arrest on the Treseifion estate in Holyhead.

Inspector Owain Llewellyn from Bangor police station said ”It’s hugely important we keep up the momentum of disrupting the gangs supply of drugs and protecting the most vulnerable. It’s also clear that we have huge support and assistance from our local communities who are fully behind what we are trying to achieve. This month has witnessed several drugs related searches, arrests and drugs seizures in the south and north of the county and this will continue to ensure the pressure is kept on those who cause the most harm. It is vitally important we listen to concerns from our local communities and where necessary take proportionate and positive action.”
