Mrs McKevitt said: “As a parent I, like many others, am hugely relieved that police have seized this huge quantity of drugs and in doing so have made our community a bit safer.
“Cannabis, although often viewed as a soft ‘recreational’ drug, is dangerous, highly addictive, and young people, particularly, can get hooked to it all too easily resulting in lives being destroyed and families being torn apart.
“I appeal to young people to be conscious of the short and long-term damage which this and other drugs can do and for people in South Down to pass on any information that they have about drugs pushers in the area to the police, where it will be treated confidentially.”
