Drugs seized during Belfast train station police operation

Police cautioned a man and seized a small amount of drugs in an operation at a Belfast train station.

The operation involving police, dog handlers, Border Force and Immigration Enforcement saw passengers stopped and searched on Saturday.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said: "Today's operation was part of  the PSNI’s ‘Think Before You Buy’ anti-drugs campaign which aims to highlight the role of recreational drug use in intimidation and serious violence in Northern Ireland’s communities.

"Think Before You Buy is a joint campaign between PSNI, An Garda Siochana, and 'Safer Blanchardstown', using posters and a short video to raise awareness that people who engage in casual drug use also contribute to the fear and intimidation inflicted on people, particularly drug debt intimidation.

“I would encourage anyone with any information about the supply of illegal drugs to call police on the non-emergency number 101.  Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
