Superintendent Gabriel Moran says: "The impact of drugs on families and the cost of paying to support a drugs habit feeds into crime levels and fear in families in the county.”

"Our community and also those involved in crime should know that despite our clear focus on supporting communities as we address the challenges of COVID-19, Gardaí in Mayo and across the country will continue to investigate crime and target those selling drugs in our communities."

An Garda Síochána is appealing to anyone who has information about those who are involved in the supply or sale of drugs to speak to their local Gardaí, contact their local station or to call the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.
