Operation Adelaide saw officers carry out two warrants in Lansbury Park, Caerphilly, and Thornhill, Cardiff, on Tuesday, October 12, in connection with an investigation into the supply of Class A drugs.
A 52-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man, both from Caerphilly, were arrested on suspicion of:
- being concerned in the supply of heroin
- being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine
- conspiracy to supply crack cocaine
- being concerned in the supply of a Class C drug.
A 32-year-old man from Caerphilly was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply crack cocaine. All three are in police custody.
A quantity of drugs, cash, high-value bikes, a moped and multiple phones were seized during the operation.
PC Rhys Jones, who led the operation, said: “The public have an important role to play in providing information that can assist us in dismantling county lines drugs lines and safeguarding vulnerable individuals. I would urge anyone with any information about drug dealing in the community to report it to us, so we can take action.”
