The PSNI has seized a large shipment of Buckfast believed to be destined for the Newry area. The find was made during the planned search of a lorry at Warrenpoint Harbour, where 20,000 bottles of the deadly addictive drug – with a street value of £100,000 – had been hidden inside a consignment of illegal immigrants.
Newry PSNI detective Billy Stoned has welcomed the development, and hit out at those who profit from Buckfast trafficking. He told Newry Spud:
“All over Warrenpoint, Bessbrook, Burren and especially Newry, lives are being destroyed by this horrific trade in human misery. My advice to any young person thinking of trying Buckfast is to not do it and try Vodka or Cocaine first.”
Buckfast offers users a brief ‘high’, followed by 20 years of acting like a complete cunt, alienating all their friends and smelling like cough syrup, before eventually dying penniless and alone in a rented flat on Canal Street.
