Sergeant Tecwyn Green at Llandudno Police Station, who coordinated today’s action said “This is part of the continuing work we are undertaking in response to our communities concerns relating to drug use and other issues across West Conwy. This is another example of North Wales Police making a positive impact on our communities through targeting those few who cause the most harm. Today’s action is just the start and further is planned. It is vitally important we listen to concerns from our communities and where necessary take proportionate and positive action. It was clear from the local response today’s operation was very well received.”
“Possession and distribution of controlled drugs will not be tolerated in our communities and we will continue to take positive, robust action. However we can’t tackle this problem alone and key to all our work, and that of our partners, is intelligence and I cannot emphasise enough the importance of the community sharing their concerns with us.
