Following a pro-active police operation by the Belfast District Support Team, 109 wraps of suspected heroin worth an estimated £2,700 have been seized and five people have been arrested on suspicion of a number of drugs related offences including possession and possession with intent to supply
Inspector Sayers said, “At around 7.30pm yesterday evening, police officers noted some people acting suspiciously in the Sprucefield area of Lisburn. Police officers carried out a drugs search and recovered a quantity of suspected class A drugs, seized nearly £3,000 in cash and arrested a 25 year old man, 23 year old man and a 33 year old woman on suspicion of a number of offences.
“During two subsequent follow-up searches at properties in North and South Belfast, smaller amounts of suspected class A and class B drugs were recovered, and a number of items seized including mobile phones, documents, £200 in cash and a computer.
A 24 year old male was arrested following the search in South Belfast and a 46 year old male arrested in North Belfast.
“Each of those arrested are currently helping police with our enquiries. Once again, I would appeal to anyone who knows anything about illegal drugs or drug dealing in their area to contact local police on the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
