Sergeant Andy Davies said: “We have a close working relationship with our Northwest colleagues and continue to share resources and intelligence to disrupt county lines.

"Our aim is to make Gwynedd North a hostile environment for those involved in the supply of drugs.

"We continue to target any individuals who operate county lines.

"They do not respect borders, the communities they bring harm and misery to, or the vulnerable people they exploit in the pursuit of illegal proceeds of crime.”
