Drugs raids: £250,000 worth seized in Swansea and Neath

More than £250,000 worth of class A and B drugs have been seized by South Wales Police.

Raids were carried out in Swansea and Neath on Friday and officers also stopped a vehicle on the M4.

Police say it included large quantities of cocaine, amphetamine, ecstasy and mephedrone and was one of the largest recovered in the area.

Three men have been charged with conspiracy to supply and one with possession with intent to supply.

Insp Mark Lenhihan from Morriston Eastside branch, said: "This is one the largest hauls of both Class A and B drugs that has been recovered in the western area of the force.

"The arrests and the discovery of such a large quantity of drugs will mean that this cache will not be heading to the streets of Swansea, Neath, Port Talbot and beyond to bring depravation and misery," he said.

"Although this is a significant break through for us, we will still continue to seek out and bring to justice those who continue to take and deal in controlled drugs."

Anyone with information on drug or crime or drug related issues should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
