THOUSANDS of tablets believed to be class A drugs have been seized in a raid.

Police swooped on a property on Prince of Wales Avenue in Flint and seized a “substantial amount” of what they believe to be ecstasy tablets.

A 33-year-old man was arrested at the location on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

He has been interviewed and bailed pending further inquiries.

Det Insp Tim Evans said; “The thousands of tablets seized were destined to be sold locally.

“This in turn has an impact upon crime committed in the area as drug users seek ways to fund the purchase of such illicit drugs.

“I would encourage anyone with information to call police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”

The police raid took place at 10.30am on Wednesday and was part of Operation Scorpion, which was launched by North Wales Police earlier this year.

It focuses on a wide range of major crimes, including drugs and human trafficking.
