Police seize drugs in Belfast alleyway children use to walk to school
Police have found drugs in an alleyway where children walk to and from school in west Belfast.
Officers on patrol in the Lower Falls area were contacted by local community reps about a quantity of drugs that have now been seized for disposal.
Some were found in the alleyway leading from Mica Drive through to the Beechmounts area.
Police said: "We do not need to stress the dangers here or what could have happened if these bags with smiley faces stamped on them, had been picked up by a child.
"We would like to thank the local reps for bringing this to our attention, and these items will be sent for disposal. We would urge anyone with information regarding drugs in their local area to contact police on 101, or anonymously via Crimestoopers on 0800 555 111.
