Police in Rhyl say there have been ‘significant’ arrests in a high profile crackdown on serious and organised crime in the town.
Detectives said a major operation took place on Wednesday in an effort to tackle cross-border crime, carrying dangerous and offensive weapons, criminal use of firearms and drug supply.
No further details of the arrests are available but a spokesperson said dedicated units and ANPR technology had been deployed to disrupt offenders who had caused the most harm in the community. They added that because the road networks provided easy access into Rhyl and the wider community, targeting criminals in such way would have ”immediate and far reaching consequences”.
District Inspector Arwyn Williams said the operation was one of a number of tactics being used to crackdown on organised crime: ”Recent events have only highlighted the challenges we continue to face in keeping Rhyl safe…whilst members of the public can feel reassured by our activity, those individuals causing harm should know that we are being proactive in our efforts to convict them.”
Anyone with information about any unusual or suspicious activity is urged to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
