Sgt Adam Sergeant said: “By taking an active stance such as this, we aim to reduce the supply of controlled drugs on the streets and to reduce the risk of harm they cause helping to make North Wales the safest place in the UK.

“Other operations will be carried out in the area as we take robust action against offenders. We want to reassure the people of West Conwy that we are taking positive action.”

He added: “These types of warrants would not be possible without the support and assistance of the local communities. I appeal to anyone with information linked to drugs supply of any kind to make contact with us. We will always treat any information in the upmost confidence.”
