The armed siege at a warehouse in Sandycroft ended when a man gave himself up to the authorities after seven hours, police have confirmed.
It has emerged that it followed the arrests yesterday (Monday, February 29) of four men in relation to a cannabis farm that was found at the site, in the Chemistry Lane/Factory Road area of the Deeside village.
When police called at another address in Factory Road yesterday morning to arrest another man wanted in connection with the drugs find, he refused to come out and made threats toward the police.
Armed police were called to the scene, and a police helicopter circled over head as the man showed no sign of coming out.
Specialist negotiators attended to assist in resolving the matter peacefully.
The siege ended after seven hours, when the man, described as in his 40s and local, gave himself up.
He was taken to a local police station for questioning.
North Wales Police superintendent Alex Goss said: “The incident concluded peacefully and no one was injured. I’d like to pass on our thanks to the local community for their patience and understanding during this time.
“Police resources were quickly deployed to the scene and our objective of protecting the public and resolving the incident peacefully was achieved.
“An investigation is now under way and North Wales Police would like to hear from anyone who can assist to contact them on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote U029118.
