SIXTH ARREST IN POLICE CRACKDOWN ON DRUG DEALING ACTIVITIES

(L-R) Superintendent Jeremy Lindsay and Detective Inspector Blemmings with some of the items, including suspected drugs, seized in the Coleraine area yesterday, Thursday 7 June.

DETECTIVES investigating illegal drugs activity in North Antrim have made a sixth arrest today (Friday 8th June ) of a 26-year-old woman. 

The woman was arrested on suspicion of a number of drugs offences in the Coleraine area, and is currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.

Detective Inspector Blemmings said: “Drugs not only affect the person taking them; their families and the community also suffer.

“I would ask anyone who has any information about the use or supply of illegal drugs to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”

Today’s arrest follows the detention of five people  yesterday in the Coleraine area – three men aged 30, 23 and 21 and two woman aged 46 and 17 – on suspicion of a number of drugs offences.

Several items, including a quantity of suspected drugs, were seized and have been taken away for further examination. All those arrested remain in police custody.
