Police have seized drugs with a street value of £35,000 and arrested a 33-year-old man in south Belfast.

Shortly before 10pm on Tuesday, December 30, as part of a proactive policing operation, officers stopped a vehicle on Stockman’s Lane. 

It was subsequently searched and Class A and Class B drugs with an estimated street value of £35,000 were seized.

A 33-year-old man was arrested for obstructing police, suspicion of possession of Class A controlled drug, suspicion of possession of Class A controlled drug with intent to supply, suspicion of Class B controlled drug and suspicion of Class B controlled drug with intent to supply.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Gillis said: “Police are working closely with communities to tackle the issue of drug supply and distribution given the harm that such substances can have on both individuals and wider society. 

"This seizure is an indication of our commitment to keeping people safe and we would encourage anyone that has information on drug dealing to contact police on 101 or alternatively information can be provided anonymously through independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
