“These arrests and seizures represent our commitment to tackling drug-related crime across Northern Ireland. A significant amount of drugs have been taken off our streets; drugs that cause misery and pain to families and communities. The drug supply only serves to line the pockets of organized criminal gangs who prey on the vulnerable in our society. I encourage anyone with information relating to the drug supply to contact the police on 101 or if you prefer to remain anonymous you can provide information via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at www .crimestoppers-uk.org.
