Well done to the police, lets hope they find stuff in the house to catch any other dealers.

Another dealer reported and arrested, excellent. Well done to the community for reporting these filthy drug dealers. I said months ago, if you are dealing this rubbish it is only a matter of time before you get a visit from the police with their BIG RED KEY!
