Officers from a recently formed high tech policing unit – set up to clamp down on organised crime and drug gangs in North Wales – seized a large amount of controlled drugs and cash in Flintshire on Thursday.
Whilst on patrol on the A494, Mold Road a car was stopped by an Intercept unit, officers found a “high quantity of controlled drugs were seized and a substantial amount of money.”
One male being arrested, police have said.
A photograph posted on the @NWPInterceptors twitter account shows a large number of evidence bags packed with boxes and tubs of “controlled drugs.”
The 16-strong Intercept Team use Automatic Number Plate Technology (ANPR) to identify vehicles often associated with the drugs trade in a bid to make the region “a hostile environment for crime groups to operate in.”
