DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit have seized suspected drugs with an estimated street value of £75,000 in Crumlin.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said: “We carried out a planned search of a property in the Lurgan Road area yesterday evening (Tuesday, 7th January) where we discovered suspected class B drugs inside the property, as well as a number of suspected cannabis plants. 

“Drugs paraphernalia and a sum of money were also seized. 

“We have arrested a man, aged 38 years old, on suspicion of offences including possession of a class B controlled drug with intent to supply, cultivating cannabis and possession of criminal property and he remains in custody this morning.”

Detective Inspector Mullan added: “We will continue to do everything possible to prevent the supply of drugs and identify those involved while at the same time, make people aware of the real danger posed to their health and their lives by illegal drugs.

“I would appeal to anyone who is aware of any information about the supply of drugs to contact local police on 101, so we can work together to do something about it.”
