SOUTH WALES - Police have found cocaine that could be worth up to £350,000 in a South Wales Valleys house. Officers searched the address at Park Street in Tonypandy at noon on Friday. The suspected drugs were found in a box, wrapped in plastic. Police also recovered what officers believe is a drug cutting agent, together with processing equipment.
A 33 year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and is currently in police custody while investigations are ongoing.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Lewis, from South Wales Police said: “Our enquiry is still in its early stages but this looks like a substantial recovery of cocaine which will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the supply of drugs throughout Rhondda.
“Today’s seizure is the result of some excellent proactive work and shows how we relentlessly pursue drug dealers. "I ask communities to continue to work with us as they are our eyes and ears, which are vital in the fight against organised crime."
