FOUR people have been arrested in Bangor in connection with County Lines drug dealing.

Officers from North Wales Police, aided by colleagues from the Cheshire and North Wales Armed Alliance Unit, executed warrants at several properties in the city on Thursday.

Suspected class A and B drugs and a weapon were seized at one address.

Four Closure Notices were also served on properties in Plas Popty and Llys Mair.

The operation was supplemented with patrols by plain clothes officers in the Maesgeirchen area of Bangor on Thursday morning which resulted in three people being stopped, searched and arrested for drug supply offences. Four people were taken into custody.

Several other addresses were visited in order to support potentially vulnerable residents in resisting County Lines activities.

Detective Inspector Dafydd Curry said: “North Wales Police, like local residents are fed up of individuals coming into our area to sell drugs.

"We will continue to pursue this type of policing, the aim of which is to ensure the safety of the public.

"We would like to thank the local community for their ongoing support in tackling this criminality, I would encourage them to continue to give us the information and we will act on it."
