Police seized bladed weapons and cannabis following a raid on a house in Connah’s Quay today, March 16. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A drugs warrant was executed at an address on Llwyni Drive this afternoon. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police have said the male occupant of the property is “suspected of involvement with an Organised Crime Gang and drug supply within the area.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Though he was not at home for the raid, attending officers did not leave empty-handed.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“A quantity of a substance suspected to be cannabis was found, along with two distinctive bladed weapons.” North Flintshire Police said in a post on their Facebook page. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Flintshire North Inspector Stephen Roberts said: “This is proactive policing which follows a preventative strategy. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s about disruption at a local level and making a tangible difference within our communities. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We’ve gathered intelligence and information on individuals, and we hit addresses like these to prevent victims of drug crimes and of drug-related enforcement. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“County Lines and OCG issues are bigger than just the drug-takers – it’s about modern day slavery, it’s about the people they have doing their dirty work for them, which all comes under our preventative policing strategy. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This type of crime ruins people’s lives, it’s as simple as that. The consequences are far-reaching not just for the individuals involved but for the whole community too.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
