Man (53) arrested as drugs worth £90,000 were seized in Belfast


Belfast Police have arrested a man after seizing Class B drugs worth £90,000 during a search operation.

PSNI Organized Crime Investigators in Belfast worked alongside partners from the Organized Crime Task Force to carry out a search of a premises in South Belfast earlier today, Sunday March 20.

A 53-year-old man has been arrested and is being questioned about the seizure.

Speaking today, Detective Inspector Kelly of the Organized Crime Unit said: “We remain fully committed to combating the scourge of drugs in our communities and will continue to proactively investigate and carry out searches related to drug trafficking.

“The very simple reality is that the sale, supply and use of these drugs only ruin lives and line the pockets of organized criminals. We are determined to disrupt their business and anyone involved in the drug trade.

“Anyone tempted to get involved in illegal drugs should have no illusions; we will seek to identify them, arrest them and bring them to justice.

“I reiterate our call for anyone who can help us identify suspects or provide information about suspected drug trafficking in their area to call the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111..”
