BBC: : Major Welsh bust recovers large cannabis haul

Five people have been arrested and a large quantity of cannabis seized in a major drugs operation across south and mid Wales.

Officers recovered 55kg (121lb) of cannabis along with 1kg (2.2lb) of cocaine.

About 1,000 cannabis plants were also recovered, along with £100,000 in cash.

Two men, aged 37 and 33, from Cardiff, two 32-year-old men from Swansea, and a man, 48, from Cilcennin in Ceredigion are being held.

They are being questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and are in custody in Bridgend.

It follows the operation by officers from Tarian, the regional organised crime unit for southern Wales.

They executed arrest warrants on Monday at properties in Cardiff, Swansea, and Lampeter in Ceredigion.

The team was supported by officers from South Wales and Dyfed-Powys Police.

As well as the drugs and cash recovered, police said paraphernalia was seized including cash counting machines and industrial weighing scales.

Police had earlier said the haul involved 55kg of cocaine and a smaller amount of cannabis but have since corrected their figures.
