Man arrested following drugs warrants in Ruabon

A man has been arrested and items recovered after officers from the Wrexham Rural Policing team executed three drug warrants in Ruabon this morning.

As part of an international day against drug misuse and trafficking, properties in Dennis Court, Maelor Place and Ffron Coch were targeted.

 A man from Merseyside has been detained on suspicious of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and a number of items including phones, cash and drugs paraphernalia have been seized.

The man under arrest is also wanted for offences by Merseyside Police.

In addition officers have placed a Closure Notice on a property in Rhosymedre that had been used to supply class A drugs, while the vulnerable occupant has been housed elsewhere for his own safety.

Acting Inspector Luke Hughes said: “I believe these actions demonstrate our determination to protect our rural communities from the effects of class A drugs and to target those who seek to exploit vulnerable individuals for their own gain.

“We would like to thank the wider community for their support today and for the information that has made today successful.”
