Teens ‘smoke heroin’ off animal bar wrapper in Dublin doorway

Teens ‘smoke heroin’ off animal bar wrapper in Dublin doorway

Shocking eye-witness footage has emerged showing a couple of youths smoking heroin in a doorway on a busy Dublin street.

The footage, which was sent to independent.ie by an unnamed eyewitness, was recorded on Drury Street in Dublin.

"I work in the city centre. I see this every day", claimed the eyewitness.  

He said that he spotted the young couple in the doorway with a large Animal bar and thought they were eating chocolate until he took a second look.

"They only wanted the animal bar for the tinfoil. Most bars have gotten rid of tinfoil but the Animal bar still has it".

"They produced a little ball of heroin... smoking it right there in broad daylight, oblivious to tourists, everything!"

"They were so brazen... so detached, for such young people".

He said that the city's drug problem is "getting worse".

"I feel sorry for the guards, their hands are tied".

"There's nothing to be done... I wouldn't want to be searching somebody with the fear of getting pricked by a needle... it's not fair on the guards".
