Drugs stash found in kids play area

It's been another productive weekend for local police officers as they continue to step up their war on the local drugs scene.

A number of warrants were executed locally over the Easter weekend with one stash of skunk found in a children’s play area (pictured).

The successes were reported through a series of Tweets from officers, with one stating: “Surely even a drug dealer would know it’s not ok to stash your skunk in a communal children’s play area? Officers from @WelshpoolPolice have thankfully removed the drugs and the investigation continues following a successful warrant today.”

In another Tweet, an officer wrote: “Report of manner of driving received on A483 near Welshpool tonight resulted in large(ish) seizure of heroin. Thankfully wasn’t driving under influence #keepingdrugsoffthestreets.”

After executing a successful warrant, a third officer stated: “We are proactively targeting and disrupting drug offenders in our community.”

Welshpool Station also posted this grizzly image of what appears to have been a failed attempt to flush drugs down the toilet during a raid.

The no-nonsense approach to drugs is proving popular with the Welshpool public who are encouraged to report any drug activity to officers in order to help with the clampdown.
