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.”
