Police in Belfast have arrested a man after seizing Class B drugs worth £90,000 during a search operation.

Detectives from PSNI Organised Crime in Belfast worked alongside partners from the Organised Crime Task Force to conduct a search of a premises in South Belfast earlier today, Sunday 20th March.

A 53-year-old man has been arrested and is being questioned in relation to the seizure.

Speaking today, Detective Inspector Kelly from the Organised Crime Unit, said: “We remain fully committed to tackling the scourge of drugs in our communities and we will continue to proactively investigate and carry out searches linked to the drugs trade.

“The very simple reality is that the sale, supply and consumption of these drugs is doing nothing but ruining lives and lining the pockets of organised criminals. We are determined to disrupt their activity and anyone involved in the drugs trade.

“Anyone tempted to become involved in illegal drugs should be under no illusion; we will seek to identify them, arrest them and place them before the courts.

“I again repeat our appeal to anyone who can help us identify suspects or provide any information about suspected drug dealing in their area to call the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
