Police monitor Welsh village to deter criminals from finding a 40 year old stash of LSD
Police are patrolling a Welsh village amid concerns that criminals may attempt to unearth a 40 year old stash of LSD. In 1977, police raided an old mansion located in the village of Carno in western Wales, where they thwarted a multi-million pound operation — believed to have supplied 90% of the LSD used in the UK.
Stephen Bentley, a detective part of the investigation, codenamed Operation Julie, has asserted that some of the stash may not have been found and may still be unspoiled even after all these years. Dyfed-Powys police have notified local residents to be wary on unfamiliar visitors and have stated that:
“Dyfed-Powys police are aware of the issue and are assessing the content of the disclosure. We will be checking the records we hold to establish whether or not matters raised warrant further investigation…in the meantime we will be making the current owners of Plas Llysyn aware of the disclosure and the potential for persons to visit the area in an attempt to locate the drugs. We will be providing them with reassurance through increased patrols.”
