A MAN has been arrested after police officers uncovered suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of £80,000.
Officers from the PSNI’s Paramilitary Crime Task Force arrested the 33-year-old man, as part of a wider police operation.
Detective Inspector Corrigan said: “The man, aged 33, was arrested and remains in custody following a proactive policing operation.
“As part of this operation, a property in the Dundonald area was searched and a further quantity of suspected Class A and Class B controlled drugs, an amount of cash and drug paraphernalia were seized and taken away for further examination,” he confirmed.
Det Insp Corrigan added: “We, as a Police Service, are committed to tackling criminality, including the scourge of drugs.
“We are all too familiar with the devastation and misery caused by such criminality and we continue to focus our efforts on removing illegal and dangerous drugs and targeting those involved in their sale and supply.
“I would encourage anyone who has any information about the use or supply of illegal drugs to contact us on 101.”
