There are no room for drugs in Oamaru, Waitaki MP Jacqui Dean says, and she’s commending local police for cleaning up the town with their recent arrests.
“Police have arrested 8 people following search warrants executed across the Oamaru and Dunedin area on June 10, when they seized drugs including cannabis, methamphetamine and MDMA.
“I’m increasingly concerned about drugs infiltrating our community. These substances bring nothing but addiction and heartache for the individuals and families affected.
“I commend police on their vigilance in making these arrests and just hope they have the resources needed to continue cracking-down on this escalating problem in not only in Oamaru but the wider Waitaki area.
“I encourage community to support police and report anything they might know, and for those involved I urge you to take a moment to reflect on the wider implications your actions are having on not only your family but your entire community."
