Great work guys, keep them coming


Nice one!


Keep it up and send em down

Hey everyone ‍♂️

Down where? Rehab yes jail no. If they are clean and selling it’s different. People need to educate themselves rather than shouting their uneducated opinions.

Wonderful stuff!

Pure filth!

Another on bites the dust

Well done again to the Police
If he is guilty the courts need to jail him for a long time. Send out a message that drug dealing is not acceptable. It destroys lives and ruins neighbourhoods. Take him out of circulation.
If you have information on drug dealers then tell the police now. Keep the momentum going and keep the arrests coming.
Drug dealing funds other vile activities to line the pockets of organised crime.


We tried to report a matter at Newport police station, And got told to come after the weekend as nobody was here from the right department or go online. This was by the lady on the desk whom spoke to the desk sergeant, whom seemed total uninterested.


I no they take no notice, I’ve tried loads of times

So when are they going to bust the one on Newport High Street just up from the police station?

Martin Shoebridge

Maybe you should head into the station and tell them about it face to face.

Told all you drug dealers months ago ‘your gonna get busted’. Decent people have had enough of all you drug pushers dealing your shit on the island. Ha ha ha. It’s just a matter of time before the ones that are dealing get a visit. Watch this space!
