Fourth arrest in NCA cannabis farm investigation

 

A fourth man has been arrested as part of a National Crime Agency investigation into a crime group suspected of using Albanian migrants to farm cannabis.
Trevor Williams, 61, had previously been the subject of a media appeal for his whereabouts.
He was detained on suspicion of conspiracy to produce and supply controlled drugs and money laundering at a location in Wrexham today by officers from North Wales Police, on behalf of the NCA.
It comes after a series of arrests on Monday in North Wales and Cheshire that saw three other men arrested on suspicion of drug cultivation and money laundering offences. A man in his 50s was later bailed, while a man in his 60s was released under investigation. A 28-year-old Albanian national was handed to the immigration authorities.
NCA operations manager Julie Booker said: “We are grateful for the help of North Wales Police, the media and the public in this investigation.”
Officers are still appealing for information to trace Albanian national Jeton Memia, 29, who has links to Manchester and Southend in Essex, as part of their investigations.
