Workers Party representative Nicola Grant has said that “the recent drugs seizures and subsequent arrests in the Newry and Armagh areas are both welcome and alarming”.
“Drugs devestate working class areas. They bring misery and death to local families. They ruin young lives while funding criminal empires. Drugs, and the criminals who peddle and profit from them, have no place in our community.”, Nicola said.
“The recent successes by the PSNI have clearly been aided by the co-operation of the local community.
That is exactly how it should be. I would urge anyone with any information about the location or supply of drugs to contact the police and help towards removing this scourge from the community”, Nicola said
