Three charged after Rhyl stop-and-search crackdown


Three people have been charged after a stop and search crackdown on knife crime in Rhyl.

Over ninety searches were carried out between Friday night and Sunday morning during the police operation, held in response to recent incidents in the area – including the murder of shop owner Amarjeet Singh-Bhakar.

The arrests were for public order offences – one of the charged was given a community order while another was also charged with assaulting a police officer.

District Inspector Alwyn Williams said more ‘proactive’ operations will be carried out in the town: ”The use of knives or similar weapons can have tragic consequences and people need to be reminded that it is a serious offence to carry such articles…we want to reassure the people of Rhyl that we are taking positive action.”
