28 December, 2015 - by Stephen Magennis


Sinn Féin Councillor for the Colin area Stephen Magennis has welcomed the seizure of over £20k of cannabis from the Colinvale area of Poleglass.

Speaking today Cllr Magennis said: 

“The seizure of such as significant amount of cannabis, believed to be over £20k, is to be welcomed. 

“These were drugs that were destined for our streets and available to our young people. 

“This seizure was community led and the PSNI acted accordingly and moved swiftly to ensure that the drugs were not sold on.  It is this type of joint approach that will be most successful in tackling dugs in our community. 

“Any such seizure  is a relief for this community and I would urge anyone with any information on those peddling drugs in our neighbourhoods to bring it to the relevant authorities in order to stamp out this destructive activity."
