Well Done PSNI, Says Policing Board Member


East Belfast DUP MLA Robin Newton, a member of the Policing Board, said congratulations and our thanks are due to the PSNI following the seizure of herbal cannabis estimated to be worth £1Million to the drugs barons.

Robin Newton said,

"This successful undercover police operation, in Belfast's Dargan Road area, is very welcome and the seizure to these illegal drugs will keep Northern Ireland's streets safer.

The work of the PSNI Drugs Squad cannot be overestimated. In the fight against these evil and vicious drug dealers the PSNI put their lives on the line to protect our society.

The detection of this cannabis haul and the two arrests are no doubt the result of many months of demanding work. Our streets are safer today and those who deal in illegal drugs are the poorer  because of the dedicated work of these drugs squad officers."
