Thousands of dealer bags discovered in Portadown community garden

Portadown drug bag find

Thousands of dealer bags have been discovered in a community garden in Portadown.

The bags, commonly used to supply illicit drugs, were found tucked away in a flower bed by a community worker.

The worker had been weeding a bed at the front of the health house in Churchill Park when they made the find.

Sinn Féin councillor Paul Duffy urged anyone with information to contact police.

“The health house is used daily by young and old members of our community and it shows how much contempt these drug dealers have towards the community,” he said.

“I would ask if you have any information about drug dealers to contact the psni or ring the confidential telephone number 0800 777 111.

“If you witness dealing going on ring 999 straight away and report it. We can all play a part in looking out for and reporting signs of drugs activity in our neighbourhoods.”
