TWO ARRESTED OVER £25,000 COCAINE SEIZURE IN NORTH BELFAST HOUSE RAID

DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit have seized a quantity of suspected class A drugs and arrested two people following the search of a house in north Belfast on Wednesday 20th June.

Detective Chief Inspector David Henderson said: “The search was carried out today at a house on the Ardoyne Road and followed the recent interception of a parcel from the postal system containing approximately £20k of suspected cocaine.

“A further quantity of suspected cocaine, thought to be worth around £25k, was located at the house today.

“A woman aged 54 and a man aged 22 were arrested at the scene on suspicion of a number of drugs related offences and are currently in custody assisting us with our enquiries.”

“Tackling the illegal supply and use of drugs is a priority for police and seizures such as this demonstrate our ongoing commitment to tackling the scourge of drugs in our society.

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

“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.”
