Five people have been arrested and bailed after a series of drugs raids in Conwy county over the past fortnight.

Detectives say thousands of pounds worth of illegal drugs were seized in three raids along with equipment for growing cannabis.

Two men and a woman were arrested after a cannabis factory was discovered in Dwygyfylchi on Saturday, where police managed to prevent the crop, which had been cut from the plants and was being prepared for use.

Another cannabis farm was discovered at a house on Howard Road in Llandudno last Thursday. One man was arrested and a large number of plants were seized, along with packaged cannabis ready for sale.

The first of the raids on Friday 16th June saw class B drugs and cash being seized from a house on Grange Road in Colwyn Bay, where a woman was taken into custody. All five suspects have since been released on bail but remain under criminal investigation.

 

PC Dan Ball said: ”Finds of this size are likely to cause disruption to the trade in illegal drugs across the area for some time to come. These types of warrants would not be possible without the support and assistance of the local communities.”

He added: ”I would appeal to anyone with information linked to drugs supply of any kind to make contact with us. We will always treat any information in the upmost confidence and if we have sufficient grounds to approach the courts for a search warrant we will do so.”
