The PSNI's Organised Crime Unit have seized a quantity of class B controlled drugs with an estimated street value of around £150,000 following the search of a vehicle and a property in the south Belfast area yesterday.

Two men, aged 35 and 62, were arrested on suspicion of possession of class B controlled drugs and possession of class B controlled drugs with intent to supply.

The 35-year-old was further arrested in connection with the seizure of class B controlled drugs with an estimated street value of £675,000 in an operation by the PSNI and the Border Force earlier this year.

He was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a number of false identity documents.

Both men remain in custody.

Detective Inspector Kelly, from the Organised Crime Unit, said: “The public can be assured of our ongoing commitment to tackle the illegal supply and use of drugs. We will continue to investigate those who profit from, and care nothing for, the misery that drugs bring to individuals, their families and communities.

“I would appeal to anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, about the supply of illegal drugs to contact police immediately on the non-emergency number 101.

"A report can also be made using the online reporting form via www.psni.police.uk/makeareport."
