Herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of £100,000 has been seized by police.

The drugs were discovered when officers swooped on three houses in Belfast, Lisburn and Antrim.

One man was interviewed in connection with the seizure but has been released pending further inquiries.

PSNI Detective Sergeant Patrick Mullan said: "The importation of illegal drugs causes significant harm within communities.

"We will continue to investigate those involved in bringing misery to the communities within Northern Ireland."

The operation involved officers from the PSNI's organised crime unit and the National Crime Agency.

Anyone with information about the supply or use of illegal drugs is asked to contact the PSNI on the non emergency 101.
