Q Radio News

A man and woman have been arrested after £1million worth of cannabis was seized in Belfast.

It was discovered in the Lisburn Road area on Thursday.

The suspects, aged in their 30s and 40s, are in police custody.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said, "A 37-year-old woman was arrested in Stranmillis, and a 48-year-old man in the Lisburn Road area on Thursday.

"These arrests and seizures are evidence of our ongoing commitment to removing and disrupting the illegal supply of drugs into Northern Ireland.

"The seizure of these drugs has removed a substantial amount of cannabis and prevented £1million from falling into the hands of organised criminals who profit from others' misery.

"We are committed to tackling the issue of drugs and would appeal to the public to speak to us if they have any concerns or information regarding drugs in their area. The number to call is 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."
