Rise in drugs seizures

THERE has been a rise in the number of drugs seizures in the Magherafelt district.

The local District Policing Partnership heard that this was as a direct result of co-operation between the PSNI Crime Team, local Neighbourhood teams and information from members of the public.

Area Commander Chief Inspector Sam Donaldson said: “Whilst it would be wrong to suggest that Magherafelt has a significant drugs problem, we must recognise there are drugs available in the town.”
