“Someone’s knocking on the door, someone’s ringing the bell ….”  One of the 10 addresses raided in the Vale of Glamorgan this morning. Penarth was one of the towns paid a visit…Oh, and the door was plate steel , and nobody answered,- so they had to go in through the window.

South Wales Police organised coordinated early-morning raids on 10 addresses in Penarth, Dinas Powys and Barry early this morning to execute drug warrants.

A total of 120 police officers were deployed in what’s called “Operation Avalanche” aimed at  tackling illicit drug supply throughout the Vale of Glamorgan

Part of a stash discovered today. The vicious scabbard knife was obviously innocently held – just for opening those fiddly plastic packets.

Eleven people are said to have been arrested on suspicion of drug offences, 7 of whom are men and 4 of whom are women seven are men .  Their ages range between 19 and 51 and all are currently in police custody.

During the raids a cash and drugs were seized. Detective Inspector Dean Taylor said: “Operation Avalanche is a large-scale operation which has involved 120 officers and partner agencies. Tackling the supply of controlled drugs is a priority for us. We will not tolerate those making a profit from other people’s misery in the Vale of Glamorgan and we are committed to disrupting and dismantling these organisations.”

Det Insp. Taylor has thanked members of the public for “their help in bringing these type of offenders to justice”.

Anyone with any further information on drug dealing is asked to report it to the police on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

      Are you surprised? The Police are doing a great job in regards to this. No doubt, what you class as morons, such as Andrew Worsley will still complain though, that he has not seen a Police officer in Penarth and the CCTV does not work in the town centre.
