Dozens of dogs have been recovered following a series of police operations.
A total of 59 dogs were rescued at locations in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot on Wednesday, March 31, on animal welfare grounds, though some are also believed to have been stolen. In addition, a number of Rolex watches were seized and cannabis plants were recovered. A stolen horse box and trailer were also discovered.
Chief Inspector Nia Hughes said: “In response to public concerns, and acting upon community intelligence, we executed several warrants across the Swansea Neath Port Talbot area. This was a fantastic example of partnership working and we are pleased to achieve such a positive result.
“Not only have we been able to retrieve the dogs but this is a prime example of intelligence-led policing which has resulted in the recovery of these dogs.”
