Inspector Mark Webster the Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for the Mansfield North Neighbourhood Policing Area said
“I am very pleased to see that charges have been brought in relation to this matter. People who are prepared to deal in illegal substances should take note that we will not only look to arrest and prosecute them for dealing drugs but that we will also look to seize their assets as well to ensure that their crimes do not pay.
I hope that this news re-assures the decent members of our Community that we will seek to prosecute drug dealers at every opportunity that we have”
