Police have arrested a 51-year-old man and a woman, aged 36, following searches in Belfast on Tuesday.

Three premises, two in south Belfast and one in east Belfast, were searched and a quantity of class B drugs with a street value of £50,000 were seized alongside a substantial sum of cash.

The arrests are part of an ongoing investigation relating to the seizure of drugs and cash in Belfast and Heathrow Airport recently.  

The drug seizures have a combined potential street value in the region of £3.5m.

The PSNI's Detective Sergeant Kelly said: “These overall seizures demonstrate our commitment to removing illegal drugs from our communities and tackling the funding of organised criminal gangs across the country. We aim to disrupt their activities at every opportunity.

"We urge anyone with information about any criminality linked to drugs to contact police on 101 or anonymously through the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111, which gives people the power to speak up and stop crime and help us keep your community safe.
