A MAN has been arrested after a large cannabis cultivation was discovered at a house in Rhyl.

Police executed a warrant at an address in the town shortly before 9am yesterday (May 30), where a number of cannabis plants across several floors were discovered.

A 27-year-old man found inside was arrested on suspicion of the production of cannabis.

The warrant came as part of “Renew Rhyl”, a multi-agency partnership in Rhyl West, aimed at regenerating an area affected by serious and organised crime.

Inspector Kevin Smith, of North Wales Police, said: “Our message to those involved in serious organised crime is very clear – we will continue to relentlessly pursue you.

“There is no hiding place for anyone who brings misery to our communities, as this latest operation demonstrates.

“People in the area will continue to see us out and about working alongside partners to protect the community and prevent organised crime groups from operating.

“Our aim with Renew is to make Rhyl West a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

“Information from the public is, however, vital if we are to continue to breakdown these groups who bring misery to our streets. 

“I would appeal to anyone who has information to either contact us on 101 or call the independent, anonymous Crimestoppers hotline on 0800 555 111.”
