SUSPECTED drugs with an estimated street value of £200,000 have been seized in Co Tyrone.

Drugs paraphernalia were also found during the planned searches at two addresses in the Tremoge View area of Pomeroy on Tuesday June 11.

PSNI Detective Inspector Barry Hamilton said: "A 28-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis, possession of a Class B controlled drug and possession of a Class B controlled drug with intent to supply and he remains in custody assisting us with our enquiries.

"This seizure is further evidence of our ongoing commitment to removing and disrupting the illegal supply of drugs in Northern Ireland.

"We know that drugs can ruin lives and line the pockets of organised criminals, and we are determined to disrupt these criminal gangs.

"We are committed to making Northern Ireland a hostile environment for those in our community who are involved in the drugs trade and anyone involved in the drugs trade, or anyone tempted to become involved should be under no illusion - we will seek to identify them, arrest them and place them before the courts."
