Tóibín welcomes Navan drug seizure

26 May, 2011

Meath West Sinn Féin TD Peadar Tóibín has welcomed the seizure of cocaine and heroin with an estimated value of €2million in Navan today.

Deputy Tóibín said:

“I welcome today’s drug seizure in Navan and congratulate the Gardaí involved in the operation.

“The scale of this seizure is reflective of the scale of the drug problem currently facing this state.

“It is imperative that Garda Drug Squads are properly resourced and that Gardaí who are fully trained in the fight against crime are taken out from behind their desks and put on the streets to do what they where trained to do.

“This means civilianising many of the administrative duties of the Gardaí.” ENDS
