A MAN who was stopped and searched in Wrexham was found to be in possession of drugs, police say.

North Wales Police have been patrolling their communities as part of Operation Blue Instinct.

During the autumn months when the nights are drawing in, there is an increase in acquisitive crime, in particular what is commonly referred to as twilight burglaries.

The aim of the Operation Blue Instinct is to deter and disrupt those that cause the community most harm, reduce crime and build safer neighbourhoods.

Officers from the Wrexham Town policing team confirmed they were conducting patrols on Ruabon Road when they stopped a male.

He was in possession of controlled drugs.
