Drugs, cash and weapons seized in County Lines police operation in Rhyl

North Wales news and information

A haul of drugs, cash and weapons have been seized in a police operation to disrupt County Lines gangs in Rhyl.

North Wales Police took part in the exercise alongside colleagues from Merseyside Police last Friday.

During the operation, several arrests were made for offences relating to the supply of Class A controlled drugs.

Inspector Jason Davies said: “The county lines model of drug supply is especially insidious as it preys on those in our communities who are most vulnerable, including children.

“North Wales Police are committed to relentlessly pursuing those who profit from the exploitation of others.

“As this operation shows, we will work with our local and regional partners to bring these organised crime groups to justice.”
