PSNI issue warning after hundreds of pounds worth of heroin discovered in Lisburn

The PSNI discovered several hundred pounds worth of heroin in Lisburn on Tuesday.

During a stop and search of a vehicle and its occupants several hundred pounds worth of heroin was discovered on a male.

A PSNI spokesperson said heroin was a particularly dangerous drug.

"Heroin is tiny in size but powerful in its impact on not only the person using but the community," the spokesperson said.

"We have seen people become hooked on this drug inside a very short time and become reliant on it just to get through their day, some turning to crime to fund this expensive addiction. But they’re not just funding their addiction, they’re funding the drug dealers.

"Heroin is indiscriminate on whose life it destroys."

The spokesperson urged anyone with information to come forward.

"If you have any information in relation to drug dealing, no matter how small, contact us on 101.

"Your information could be the vital piece of the jigsaw, it has been before, and all information will be dealt with confidentially. Don’t leave it to someone else.

"If you prefer you can also contact CrimeStopppers on 0800 555 111."
