YOU may have heard the term County Lines and you would definitely have heard the word cuckoo. Put them together and you have a recipe for misery and deterioration of the community.
Organised crime gangs have been operating a system called ‘cuckooing’, whereby they target vulnerable individuals in the county and establish themselves within homes in order to run rackets including drugs, child exploitation, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. It has become a blight on the very communities we love.
Dyfed-Powys Police are seeking assistance in identifying potential players within Carmarthenshire.
Llanelli Online were invited along to find out more about how they are engaging with communities to try and deal with the County Lines operations.
