Cannabis raid with drug dealing a PACT priority

3 May 2016

A cannabis factory has been shut down after a police raid near the Taff Embankment in Grangetown last week.

Police seized a number of plants from the old garage building near Pentre Gardens.

Drug dealing is a PACT priority for May. Suspicions of drug dealing in the north Grangetown area were raised at the April meeting with police promising to target the issue in the next month, alongside ongoing operations in the area.

Taff Mead residents have also been on the alert for suspicious vehicles in the neighbourhood of Pentre Gardens and urged people to call 101. Residents in the wider area off Cornwall Street and Court Road were also asked to report any descriptions of suspicious cars or people to 101 – even anonymously – to help build up intelligence.

Police have already heightened patrols via waymarkers in the Windsor Quay and Pentre Gardens area, in which drugs are also issues. Ferry Road is another area, involving shoplifting at the retail park.

Residents again raised issues regarding fly-tipping and litter, while abandoned cars and lorry deliveries in Clare Road were other issues.
