MORE arrests have been made in an ongoing anti-drugs operation, with further arrests to follow, according to police.  


Two men from the Caernarfon area were arrested yesterday (Wednesday, August 28) on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs in Gwynedd and Anglesey.


The arrests were made as part of North Wales Police's Operation Scorpion. 


Carl Andrew Williams, aged 30, was due appear at Caernarfon crown court today (Friday, August 29) charged with conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs. 


Another man, aged 40, was released on bail to allow officers time to complete their investigation.

Detective Inspector Arwyn Jones, who is leading the investigation, said: “The continued arrests and activity under Operation Scorpion this week demonstrate our total commitment to eradicate this level of criminality from our communities.

"These further arrests now bring the total number to 26 the majority of whom have been charged, remanded and are already off our streets. 

“Further arrests will follow, the investigation will continue and I’d like to reiterate that anyone with information regarding the production and supply of controlled drugs or anyone they believe is involved in organised crime contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
