Detective Chief Inspector Dean Taylor said,

“This was huge seizure, and our specialist drone intelligence led us to uncover this large-scale illegal operation.

By disrupting supply lines and taking those involved out of circulation, we can make South Wales’s communities safer.

This type of drug offending does have its victims and has a devastating impact on communities and vulnerable people.

We can only do this with the support and information that we get from the public, so I encourage anyone with information about drug dealing in their community to call us on 101, we treat every piece of information as important.”
