District Support Team carried out a number of searches in Coleraine, Portstewart and Dunloy yesterday as part of continuing efforts to tackle drug related criminality in the community.
This was a significant local operation supported by colleagues from Tactical Support Group.
Items seized included Class A and Class C substances, suspected prescription drugs, mobile phones, a laptop, needles and other drug related paraphernalia, along with a quantity of cash.
A 38 year old man was arrested on suspicion of a range of drug offences and is currently helping us
with our enquiries.
A 61 year old woman was also arrested on suspicion of possession of Class B and Class C. She was released on bail pending further enquiries.
Chief Inspector Ian Magee said: “This was a significant local operation carried out by District Support Team with assistance from Tactical Support Group colleagues. Drugs ruin lives and damage communities. We will continue to act on all information provided to us and target those who seek to exploit vulnerable people for their own criminal gain.”
