A 44 year old man has been charged with two counts of possession of a Class A controlled drug, possession of a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply, possession of a Class B controlled drug, possession of a Class C controlled drug and other offences.

He is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court today, Thursday, November 11.

As is normal procedure, all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.

The charges are in relation to the arrest of a man by detectives from the PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit, following the seizure of approximately 2kg of suspected cocaine yesterday, Wednesday, November 10.

The haul was seized by police after officers stopped a moped travelling through east Belfast.

Follow up searches were carred out in north Belfast and Crossgar where seveal thousand pounds in cash was seized.

Detective Inspector McCamley of the OCU said: “This significant seizure has meant we have removed a large quantity of illegal drugs from the streets and prevented untold damage being caused to individuals and the wider community. 

“Drugs harm our communities and cause misery to those who take them and their wider family circle. 

“We will work with the public and our partner agencies to seize illegal drugs and prosecute those responsible.”

 “Anyone with information about any criminality linked to drugs should contact police on 101 or anonymously through the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111, which gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
