2 September, 2009 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD has welcomed a number of Garda operations which have resulted in the arrest of eleven people and the seizure of a large quantity of drugs in Dublin and Roscommon over the course of last night and this morning. Deputy Ó Snodaigh said the large quantities of drugs seized showed that there can be no let up in the fight against drugs.

Speaking today Deputy Ó Snodaigh said, “Gardaí have taken part in a number of successful operations over the course of last night and this morning which have seen eleven people arrested and the recovery of large quantities of drugs. I want to congratulate those officers involved.

“The volume of drugs recovered shows that the drugs crisis is continuing and there can be no let up in the fight against it as a result of Government cutbacks.

“It is also important that any quantities of cash recovered by the Criminal Assets Bureau as a result of these operations are invested back into the communities where the drug dealers have been most active and where the effects of their trade are most evident.” ENDS
