Cannabis with an estimated street value of £100,000 has been seized in Dunmurry on the outskirts of south Belfast.

Detectives from the Organised Crime Branch carried out the planned search yesterday.

"This seizure highlights our continued determination to tackle the scourge of illegal drugs in the local community and I would appeal to anyone who has concerns about illegal drugs to contact police," a PSNI spokesman said.

"We will look into any report that we receive as we work with the community to reduce the harm caused by these drugs."

East Belfast DUP MLA and Policing Board member Robin Newton welcomed the news. "Drugs are a scourge in our communities and I welcome the actions of the drugs squad as they continue their work in keeping our streets safer," he said. "The PSNI deserve our thanks and our support for another successful operation."
