‘Sometimes it pays to be a little bit nosey’ - policewoman sniffs out drugs stash in Ballycastle
A “super nosey” female member of the Ballycastle Neighbourhood Policing Team was hot on the case when a car caught her eye in Ballycastle on Saturday, leading to the seizure of a stash of drugs.
The police officer shared her story on social media:
“Whilst doing a few enquiries yesterday a vehicle caught my eye parked at the rear of the chapel car park in Ballycastle. So being a policewoman and also being super nosey, I parked alongside it to check it out a little more.
“The sun was shining, the heat was powerful and as I peered into the passenger side of the car I got a HUGE whiff of Cannabis and an interesting view of dealing bags and a grinder.
“My mind was made up that this car was up to no good and was full of more than my eye could see, so I tried the door handle and to my absolute surprise… IT WAS OPEN!! Subsequently I then searched the vehicle under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, and seized approximately £1000 worth of Class B drugs.
“A male was arrested, all drugs seized and he was charged with Drug suppling offences to appear at Court in Ballymena in the near future.”
