PSNI make £1 million drug seizure

A 38 year old man was arrested

POLICE have seized about £1 million of suspected class B drugs.

Detectives from PSNI's organised crime branch yesterday arrested a 38 year old man in relation to the possession and supply of controlled drugs.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said the arrest took place in the Antrim area and the man remained in custody last night.

"As a result, detectives have seized approximately £1m pounds worth of suspected class B drugs," he said.

"Organised crime detectives will continue to protect communities from the harm of illegal drugs. This is one of the largest seizures of class B drugs in recent times and, not only have we stopped these drugs being sold on our streets, we have stopped the profits from lining the pockets of organised criminals."
