Friday 31 Oct 2014
North Wales Police have charged a further four people following arrests conducted earlier this month in Caernarfon under ‘Operation Scorpion’.
Last week two men aged 31 and 40 together with two woman aged 24 and 46 respectively and all local to Caernarfon answered their bail and were charged with Conspiracy to Supply Class A and Class B Controlled Drugs. They, together with nearly 30 others appeared before Caernarfon Crown Court this week on plea and direction hearings. A large number have now pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in the new year.
Detective Sergeant Rhys Jones of North Wales Police and who is part of the Op Scorpion team said ‘The latest batch of those charged under this particular operation brings the total to 31 and demonstrates to the community and those involved in this level of criminality, that we will do all we can to relentlessly pursue those involved in organised crime.
“The scale of those who pleaded guilty this week is testimony to the hard work and commitment of North Wales Police in tackling the supply of Class A and Class B Controlled Drugs into North Wales. However we will not rest on our laurels in our resolve to eradicate this level of criminality from out towns and so I’d urge anyone with information regarding the production and supply of controlled drugs or anyone they believe is involved in organised crime to contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
