Gwynedd South officers are continuing to work with licensed premises to tackle drug use in toilet areas in the lead up to the busy festive period.
Specialist drug swipe kits were used to test surfaces in the restrooms and toilet areas at licenced premises in the Bala, Bryncrug, Tywyn and Aberdyfi areas.
This week, 11 of the 12 premises showed positive results for traces of cocaine, including positive results found in some disabled toilets and baby changing areas.
Further visits will take place across Gwynedd South in the coming weeks.
Neightbourood Policing Team Sergeant Simon Barlow said: “We thank licensees for their ongoing support and continue to work with them to ensure the nighttime economy in Gwynedd South remains safe.
“I would encourage anyone with information about drugs in their local area to report it to police or anonymously via CrimeStoppers.”
Anyone with concerns about drugs in the local area should contact us via our website or by calling 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers.
