By Alan Erwin

Two women have been remanded in custody in connection with the seizure of cannabis worth around £350,000.

Znu Ming Yu (45) and Ling Yang (24) were charged after police found the drugs during searches of properties in Belfast, Larne and in Co Down this week.

Both are accused of having cannabis with intent to supply and conspiracy to supply.

Yang, of Euterpe Street in Belfast, faces further counts of converting criminal property, namely cash, transferring criminal property, encouraging or assisting in offences and obstructing police.

She did not seek bail during an an appearance before Belfast Magistrates Court yesterday.

Yu, of Beersbridge Road, Belfast, mounted an application to be released from custody. But District Judge Amanda Henderson refused due to fears she may reoffend, flee or interfere with witnesses.

They are due to appear in court again on August 1.
