East Antrim Ulster Unionist Party candidate Roy Beggs has welcomed news over the weekend that drugs worth an estimated £10,000 were seized and taken off our streets by the PSNI.
Mr Beggs said “Well done first and foremost to the PSNI for the work they continue to do in the fight to eradicate drugs from our communities. Drug addiction ruins lives. I am advised that herbal cannabis was found in addition to some class A drugs. With class A drugs in particular, being dealt by local drug dealers we all must be concerned with the associated problem of drug progression, addiction and the crime often associated with having to fed that addiction. Organised crime gangs are feeding off the community. I know that that information from the community is vital in the battle against drug mis-use If you have any information in relation to the sale of illegal drugs in our community, please give it to the PSNI, or anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.”
