Illegal veterinary drugs seized by police

Illegal veterinary drugs have been seized in south Armagh.

A quantity of cattle worming medicine that is not legally registered to use in Northern Ireland was found after a planned search in Crossmaglen.

The operation was actioned by police working alongside veterinary experts from the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs.

Inspector Leslie Badger, from the PSNI's Neighbourhood Policing Team, hailed the seizure.

"It demonstrates our determination to work with key partner agencies to ensure that any illegal drugs, including veterinary drugs, are taken out of society," he said.

"I would ask anyone who has any information about illegal drugs to contact police on the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111."
