Detectives investigate the supply of drugs offered via social media messaging apps

Detectives from the Police Service’s Organised Crime Branch are investigating the illicit supply of drugs offered via social media messaging apps.

Part of Operation Dealbreaker, the investigation focuses on criminals offering drugs for sale on messaging apps that have been identified from mobiles seized within the Greater Belfast area. 

Detective Superintendent Emma Neill said: “Within these private groups, a seller typically offers to supply all kinds of drugs, as well as counterfeit goods and currency.  On a small number of occasions, even firearms have been offered. 

“The drugs are often listed in menu-style formats: with the list of drugs available, the respective breakdown of prices per quantity, and an explanation of how to purchase.”
