Inspector McKay said: “That information can sometimes be the final piece in the jigsaw that enables us to carry out searches. This information gives us the chance to remove drugs and other harmful substances from our community and put those responsible before the courts.

“With the continued help and support of the community, we will continue to address this issue as a priority.
