Cash and cannabis related products used to lace sweets with drugs have been seized from an address in Wrexham.

North Wales Police carried out the warrant at an address in Bangor Road Johnstown on Monday August 3.

Insp Mike Norbury said the warrant was part of a concerted effort to tackle drug crime and the latest trend used by drug pushers to hook younger victims.

He said: “These criminals have stooped to using cannabis oils and other drugs to lace sweets and other items to make them more attractive to younger customers – to sell the image of drug taking as fun instead of illegal and dangerous.

“We want to warn teenagers and parents of the dangers of taking items such as ‘Nerd Rope’ and laced sweets.

“There are serious risks involved as the strength and impact of these illegal items on individuals are totally unknown.

“Call us 101 if you have information on drug crime.”
