Five people have been arrested in the latest of a series of major police operations in Rhyl.
Detectives said the arrests on Tuesday were for a number of crimes including motoring offences and failing to turn up in court. Another nine people were given fixed penalty tickets for ‘Fatal Five’ offences and four vehicles were seized.
Specialist teams used ANPR technlology as part of one of several ongoing operations in Rhyl in an effort to reassure the public. Earlier this month, three people were charged for public order offences during a stop and search crackdown on knife crime in the town.
In May, detectives announced they had made significant arrests in a day-long high profile campaign against cross-border crime, carrying dangerous and offensive weapons, criminal use of firearms and drug supply.
After Tuesday’s operation, District Inspector Alwyn Williams said: ”The public were fully supportive of the operation, which was led by the Local Policing Service, with assistance from officers from Operational Support Services.”
”It was conducted to disrupt all types of criminality…the road networks provide easy access into Rhyl and the wider community so to target criminals in this way can have immediate and far reaching consequences.”
Anyone with information about any suspicious activity should contact North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
