FOUR people have been arrested as part of a initiative to tackle drugs offences, police in Flintshire have said.

North Wales Police's Flintshire North team announced details of the operation on Friday evening.

A spokesman said: "Deeside residents, working closely with our colleagues from Merseyside Police as part of Operation Overlord, today we have had a proactive day of action, utilizing plain clothed officers, the drone unit and the roads policing teams to target Class A drug dealers and Crime Groups from Merseyside.

"There have been over 50 officers working on todays operation between the two forces and there have been numerous seizures of drugs, cash, phones and vehicles."

Sgt Steve Lloyd added: "It has been another successful day working closely with our colleagues from Merseyside Police.

"Four arrests have been made and over 20 stop searches were conducted, recovering drugs and stolen property. Just as drug dealers don't have boundaries, neither do we."
