Off duty officer picks up a suspected drug dealer while out shopping...

The actions of an off duty officer in Pontypridd led to the arrest of a suspected drug dealer and the seizure of cash and drugs on Tuesday (12 May). The alert officer noticed a man on an off road bike, acting suspiciously in the car park of Sainsbury's at approximately 7pm. Officers were called to assist and a search resulted in the seizure of what’s believed to be amphetamine and heroin, together with hundreds of pounds in cash. A 35 year-old man from Ynysybwl arrested in connection with drugs and driving offences remains in police custody. Local Policing Inspector Stephen Daley said: "A police officer knows what to look out for and their instincts serve them well, on or off duty." An investigation is ongoing.
