The prevalence of drugs detections in Donegal has been highlighted by gardaí this week as they urge people to report concerns in their communities.
Two arrests were made in the past week over the sale and supply of drugs in Donegal.
In the same period, there were also eight detections for the ‘simple possession of drugs’.
All people involved will face court appearances.
Such cases are common in the county, according to gardaí, who wish to remind the public that detections being made very regularly all over the Division for the offence of simple possession and that searches under the Misuse of Drugs Act are conducted regularly.
While the large scale drug seizures are more widely reported, gardaí are reminding the public about the very serious consequences of drugs offences.
Spokesperson Garda Claire Rafferty said: “A conviction for a drugs offence of any sort could have lasting consequences when applying for a job or if you wish to travel and people need to think long and hard about the consequences of getting detected with any amount of illegal drugs in their possession whether the amount is big or small.”
