Naomi Long MP said: “I would like to pass on my congratulations to the Police on the discovery of this cannabis factory. They have ensured that these drugs will not reach the streets where they could have done untold damage to the lives of people in East Belfast.
“The community is safer now that these drugs have been seized but there are other individuals who are intent on peddling these dangerous substances on our streets.
“The Police need the support of the public to take more drugs off our streets and to arrest those responsible for their supply and distribution. It is only with the help of the public that we can put an end to the drugs trade in Northern Ireland.”
