Police in South Armagh have dismantled a cannabis factory following the recent search of a house in Jonesborough. Cannabis Officers carried out a search at a house in the Eden Valley area of Jonesborough shortly after midday. Over 150 cannabis plants which appear to have been recently cultivated, and a large quantity of items associated with the cultivation of cannabis, were recovered. Inspector Lorraine Dobson said, “Local officers remain dedicated in taking drugs out of circulation and reducing the harm they cause to communities. “I would continue to encourage anyone with any information about the sale and supply of illegal drugs in the community to contact police on 101 or ring the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.” Slieve Gullion Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Larkin welcomed the dismantling of the cannabis factory. “It appears that this had been running for a number of months and although only one room was in use there was enough equipment on site to extend to all the other rooms in the house. “Certainly thousands of pounds worth of plants were recovered and destroyed. Local residents are shocked that this drug factory had been set up within their estate. “Thankfully the diligence of the Police has shut down what is essentially a threat to the health and well being of the population,” he added.
