Undercover Operation four wanted

South Wales Police has released pictures of four men they wish to speak to as part of an investigation into drug dealing in Cardiff.

So far more than 50 suspected drug dealers have been arrested following a six-month undercover operation targeting those who supply class-A drugs such as heroin and crack cocaine.

Operation Foxtrot focused on Roath, Cathays, the city centre, Riverside and Grangetown as a direct result of information and concern from the community about drug dealing.

A large number of the 56 people who were arrested mostly during October have already either been sentenced at court or are on remand awaiting sentence.

Police are now appealing to the public to help identify a further four people
Head of CID in Cardiff Detective Chief Inspector Tony Brown said: “Operation Foxtrot has been a partnership approach to tackling drugs in our communities.

“This has meant taking drugs off our street, putting the dealers in prison, cleaning areas where drug deals have taken place, and providing support to drug users.

“During this operation we witnessed drugs being sold openly on our streets, in parks and in subways, which quite simply will not be tolerated.

“We are committed to keeping drugs off the streets of Cardiff. I would ask anyone who recognises the men in the photographs, or the individuals themselves, to contact South Wales Police on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or their nearest police station.”

Operation Foxtrot has involved close partnership working with Cardiff Council and the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board to support drug users, clean public areas and initiate further action against those living in local authority housing.

Anyone with information on the supply of drugs is asked to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, South Wales Police on 101, or their local officer whose contact details can be found on www.ourbobby.com.
