One such parcel was sniffed out by a police dog at a sorting office in Haverfordwest

Police have intercepted a quantity of drugs that were being transported in Wales through the Royal Mail postal service.

Officers from Dyfed-Powys Police were at a sorting office in Haverfordwest on Tuesday after being tipped-off by Royal Mail staff in recent weeks and months about suspect packages being sent in the mail.

A police dog was used as part of the operation, and he was able to sniff out drugs hidden inside an everyday package.

The package was highlighted by staff as one that was raising concerns, and police dog Billy was immediately able to give a positive indication that it did contain illegal drugs.

That particular parcel was found to contain 2.6g of cannabis, which was then seized by police.

Police thought they smelt something when they walked past a house - they found £30k of drugs inside

“While a small amount of drugs were found, this operation highlighted that Royal Mail is being used by some people to supply illegal substances, and has allowed us to gather vital intelligence to form future work,” said Haverfordwest sergeant Gerwyn Davies.

“We had positive feedback from staff and the manager, who are now aware that suspicious packages have been delivered to some addresses in the area.

"We intend for this to be an ongoing partnership with the aim of disrupting the supply of illegal substances.”

Sergeant Davies, along with dog handler PC John Llewellyn and Billy, were able to carry out the operation while Royal Mail staff got on with their work.

“This is something we were keen to clamp down on immediately, so we arranged to carry out an operation at the sorting office to both intercept any illegal drugs being sent by mail, and gather intelligence to form a bigger picture,” added Sergeant Davies.
VERY IMPORTANT AND INFORMATIVE CORONAVIRUS THREAD HERE
It's good to get these types of threads, the ridiculous my manager said bollox so we can reassure ourselves that while the world is falling apart, Royal Mail managers are still being the low life c***s they have always been.
