Four people have been arrested in a series of raids in Bangor as part of a crackdown on so-called ‘County Lines’ drug dealing.
Three people were stopped and searched on the Maesgeirchen estate by plain clothes officers during extra patrols on Thursday morning.
Meanwhile, four properties have been closed in Plas Popty and Llys Mair – a weapon and suspected class A and B drugs were found at one address.
Armed police officers from the Cheshire and North Wales alliance unit joined North Wales Police officers as part of the operation.
They also carried out several visits to other addresses to help potentially vulnerable residents in resisting drug crime.
Detective Inspector Dafydd Curry said: ”North Wales Police, like local residents are fed up of individuals coming into our area to sell drugs. We will continue to pursue this type of policing, the aim of which is to ensure the safety of the public.”
On Tuesday, a 40 year-old man from Speke on Merseyside was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply as part of a suspected county lines operation. He was later released on bail.
Meanwhile, two young men, aged 18 and 19, were questioned after a large haul of heroin and cocaine by organised crime detectives in the city on Wednesday.
