One kilo of suspected cocaine has been seized following the search of a house in Newtownabbey.

It was recovered during a planned search in the Mayfield High Street area on Wednesday June 22.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said: “There is no doubt this was destined for distribution and sale on the streets of Northern Ireland and we are delighted to have removed it from circulation, reducing the potential harm to individuals and communities.

“We will continue to work with communities and act on information about illegal drugs. Support from the community is vital in this and I would encourage anyone with information about drug dealing, supply or importation to get in touch with us on 101.”
