    This accomplishes nothing. They will have been replaced by new dealers and so on. This tail chasing process by the police serves only to spend the taxpayers money for nothing. The new graduating class of drug dealers are salivating.

    Well done! The Halton Police deserve praise and gratitude for their great work.
    It will be interesting to find out how long this group will be incarcerated.
