Man Charged After Seizure of £300,000 Haul Of Cocaine
Commenting on the case, Area Commander Chief Inspector Deirdre Bones said: “This seizure has taken these drugs off our streets and made our communities safer. It underlines our commitment to tackling the issue of illegal drugs in the Down area.
“As a main priority in the Down area, my officers and I have been working with the local community to tackle the issue of drug supply and distribution.
“The misery drugs can cause to communities, to families, to those who get involved in drugs cannot be measured. My officers continue to disrupt and arrest those involved in the sale and supply of drugs in an effort to bring these individuals before the courts and work with communities and partner agencies to reduce the threat of harmful and illegal activity.
“I would ask anyone who has any information to contact Police on 0845 600 8000. Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Down District Councillor Willie Clarke, Chairman of Down Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP), welcomed this latest development and praised the efforts of the PSNI in continuing to address the issue of drugs in our area.
