Three arrests after suspected heroin seized in north Belfast
Suspected heroin and drug related paraphernalia has been seized by police during a planned search of a flat in the Cliftonville Road area of north Belfast.
Three men aged 43, 39 and 27 have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A controlled drug and possessing a class A controlled drug with intent to supply.
They are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop said: "We will focus our resources on those who we believe are likely to cause the most harm within the community.
"Heroin can kill - that is a fact - and anyone who is suspected of involvement in the supply of this drug can expect to be arrested by police and presented before the courts. Those who deal in this kind of drug should be aware that upon conviction, the supply of any class A drug will attract a lengthy prison sentence."
