Cannabis plants and herbal cannabis with a street value of around £225,000 have been recovered following the search of a house in south Down.

Police arrested one man and recovered the plants in the Kilkeel Road area of Annalong on Tuesday May 12.

The man, aged in his 60s, remains in police custody.

Detective Inspector Keith Gawley from Reactive and Organised Crime said: “This operation has taken a substantial amount of drugs out of circulation and reduced the harm they cause to communities. This is a key example of how the PSNI is keeping people safe while policing in the community.

“I would urge anyone who knows anything about the sale and supply of drugs to contact the police on the non-emergency number 101 and tell us what you know. Or if someone would like to pass information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
