Drug arrests and seizure in Denbigh
Thursday 14 Dec 2017
North Wales Police’s pursuit of those who possess and supply controlled drugs in rural Denbighshire continued today, Thursday 14th December, when local police executed Misuse of Drugs Act search warrants in the Denbigh area. Officers seized a quantity of what they believe to be class A controlled drugs and related paraphernalia and arrested three men and one woman, all from the Denbigh area. They remain in custody awaiting interview.
DCI Neil Harrison at Central CID in St Asaph said ‘This is part of the continuing work we are undertaking in response to our local communities concerns relating to drug use, together with the associated violence and another example of North Wales Police listening to concerns and intelligence from our communities and acting upon them. Our commitment in keeping our communities safe remains a priority. The feedback from the local community was very positive and it was rewarding to see the impact our action had today. Further action is 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. 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 and information with us.
