TWO men aged 23 and 21 years old have been arrested following a proactive policing operation by officers from the Belfast District Support Team in North Belfast this morning (Thursday 28th November).

Sergeant Russell said: “Shortly before 00:30am, officers stopped a vehicle in the area of Limestone Road in Belfast.

“A quantity of suspected herbal cannabis was seized with an estimated street value of around £2,500 during the incident along with other items and a sum of money.  

“Both men were arrested on suspicion of possession of Class B drugs and possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply.

“They have now been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

“These arrests and seizures are further evidence of our ongoing commitment to removing and disrupting the illegal supply of drugs in the Belfast area.

“We know the misery drugs can cause to individuals, their families and the wider community.

“We are committed to do all we can to remove harmful illegal drugs from the streets of Belfast. 

“We would appeal to anyone who knows anything about illegal drugs or drug dealing in their area 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.”
