TWO men and a woman have been charged after cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £50,000 were uncovered two days ago.
The plants were found during searches of premises on the Ballygowan Road in Comber, Co Down on Thursday.
Police described the premises as a “sophisticated operation”.
The two men, aged 26 and 49, and the 39-year-old woman have been charged with a number of offences under the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act by detectives from the PSNI’s Organised Crime Branch.
These include cultivating cannabis and possessing a class B controlled drug with intent to supply.
The two men and woman are due to appear at Ards Magistrates’ Court in Newtownards today, Saturday, January 28, for a first remand hearing.
