In the past few weeks, police in Dublin have become increasingly aggressive in their drug-related crackdown.
They have stopped drug users, seized and seized the drugs, and even raided homes, the Irish Times reported.
A drug unit commander in the town of Clonmel has told the Irish Independent that the drug problem is worse than he had thought and that he has seen drug users in his neighbourhood turn up dead.
The problem has escalated to a point where he has had to intervene in the case of an innocent man.
A police spokesperson said in a statement to the Irish Examiner that the number of deaths in the last few months had increased by about 30 per cent.
“We have had an increase in deaths from drugs,” he said.
In one case, the police arrested a man who was carrying two bags of heroin, including a box of 10 pills.”
We are now in a situation where we have to take a hardline approach and have to do what we can to stop drugs from becoming a problem.”
In one case, the police arrested a man who was carrying two bags of heroin, including a box of 10 pills.
The man was not known to police and the drugs were recovered, but he was still charged with drug offences.
A spokesperson for the drug unit said they had seen a spike in heroin use in Clonmell, and the department was now taking a more “proactive approach” to drugs in the area.
