Detective Inspector Shaw said: “Those who deal in drugs remain a priority for the PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit and we will continue to robustly and proactively pursue those who are intent on damaging our communities by supplying illegal drugs.

“This follows a proactive search of a house in the Tobermore area on Sunday 10th January 2021, where a quantity of suspected Class A drugs were seized.

“Through Operation DEALBREAKER, and the multi-agency efforts of the Organised Crime Task Force, we will continue to carry out operations, to break the cycle of those who seek to cause harm through the illegal importation and supply of drugs in Northern Ireland, and to dismantle the organised criminals who profit from this incredibly harmful activity.

“I would encourage anyone with information that could assist in our efforts to contact us on the non-emergency number 101, or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/.
