TWO YOUTHS have been arrested on suspicion of drugs-related offences in Flintshire, police have confirmed.

During increased patrols in the town yesterday (May 23) and following recent anti-social behaviour concerns, North Wales Police officers stopped a suspect vehicle.

Two males were searched, along with the vehicle, and a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

They have both been released under investigation as enquiries continue.


A spokesperson for North Wales Police added: "Increased patrols will continue in Flint as part of Operation Restore – an enhanced operational capability funded by the Home Office to tackle anti-social behaviour hotspots across the region.

"North Wales Police has recently been assigned a £1 million grant aimed specifically at eradicating anti-social behaviour and serious violence in problem areas."
