TWO people have been arrested following the seizure of suspected Class C drugs in east Belfast.

The arrests followed the search yesterday of two properties in the area by members of the PSNI's Organised Crime Branch assisted by local officers.

Alongside the suspected drugs, a quantity of cash and electronic items were also seized.

A 32-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman were arrested and remained in police custody last night assisting with enquiries.

A PSNI spokesperson said: "We're grateful for the support of local people, and I'm keen to reiterate our ask for anyone with information, or concerns, to get in touch on 101."
