DETECTIVES have seized drugs with a street value of £35,000 during a planned bust against criminals.
A 33-year-old man was also arrested during the operation in south Belfast under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
Police say that shortly before 10 pm last night, December 30, as part of a proactive policing operation, officers stopped a vehicle on Stockman’s Lane.
It was subsequently searched and Class A and Class B drugs with an estimated street value of £35,000 were seized.
A 33-year-old man was arrested for obstructing police, suspicion of possession of Class A controlled drug, suspicion of possession of Class A controlled drug with intent to supply, suspicion of Class B controlled drug and suspicion of Class B controlled drug with intent to supply.
Detective Chief Inspector Colin Gillis said: “Police are working closely with communities to tackle the issue of drug supply and distribution given the harm that such substances can have on both individuals and wider society.
“This seizure is an indication of our commitment to keeping people safe.
“We would encourage anyone that has information on drug dealing to contact police on 101 or alternatively information can be provided anonymously through independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
