“Drugs are a real concern but with local people’s continued support and co-operation, we can all make a difference and reduce the threat of such criminality.
“Those who think they can get away with peddling drugs without facing the consequence are wrong. We are and we will continue to target anyone involved in drugs and the criminality around such products.”
