"The importation of illegal drugs causes significant harm within communities, he said.

"Whilst I welcome the fact that these drugs have been taken off our streets, I continue to appeal to members of the public to come forward with any information about the supply or use of illegal drugs. Anyone with any information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
