Milford Haven: Armed police arrest four following alleged assault

Published

on

ARMED OFFICERS assisted Milford Haven police on Tuesday evening (Jun 12) to execute a raid on a property in Elm Lane, Mount Estate.

Sixteen police officers, including dog handlers, emerged from six vehicles and cordoned off a property at around 10.30pm, as up to fifty local residents stood by and watched.

Police have said the response followed a report of an assault at a property.

Four people were arrested following the raid – two 26-year-old men, a 47-year-old man, and a 23-year-old woman.

All four have released under investigation pending further enquiries.

After the area was secure, officers with guns drawn went up to the property and shouted: “Armed police, if you are in there open up!”

After no one answered the door, and with police dogs barking, other officers went around to the patio doors at the rear of the property and gained entry.

Shouts of “Police don’t move!” echoed over the council estate as neighbours watched in stunned silence.

The men stood with their hands on their heads while police pointed semi-automatic weapons and tasers at them. The laser target was clearly visible on their chests as they stood waiting to be handcuffed.

Police officers thoroughly searched the arrested persons stating they had intelligence that they may have knives or weapons.

One resident told the Herald that the same address had been raided before. She said: “Yeah the cops did this address a few times, and now they are back again.”

One of the arrested men shouted: “I haven’t done nothing, I haven’t done nothing, why are you arresting me?”

By around midnight the individuals arrested had been transported to local police stations, and the police left the scene. The council were on hand to make the property secure, and an ambulance was on standby in case of any injuries during the raid.

A police spokesperson said: “Dyfed-Powys Police was called to a report of an assault at Mount Estate, Milford Haven, shortly after 10pm yesterday (June 12).

“Neighbourhood Policing Team officers attended within six minutes. Armed response officers also attended.

“A property at Elm Lane was secured and four people were arrested for assault – two 26-year-old men, a 47-year-old man, and 23-year-old woman.

“All four have released under investigation pending further enquiries.”

This latest operation follows a number of raids at the estate for drugs, as part of a wider operation in Pembrokeshire. Last month, police said that they had taken several thousands of pounds of illegal narcotics off the streets and recovered considerable sums of cash. As part of the operation they used chainsaws to cut down front doors, using American shock- and-awe tactics.
