Police hail success of anti-drug operation

Ten thousand pounds worth of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis has been seized in police raids across the Island.

Operation Deflect led to the arrest of 17 people and is being hailed a success by officers and politicians.

All five neighbourhood policing teams were involved in the execution of twelve warrants at a number of properties. 

The raids took place over six days last week and targeted suspected drug users and dealers.
