By Staff Reporter

A man armed with a crossbow has been arrested for having class B drugs, making threats to kill and assault on police.

He was detained after officers were called to a house in Central Park in Antrim following a report of a man with a crossbow on Tuesday evening. The 41-year-old was arrested outside the house after around 40 minutes.

Chief Inspector Stephen Reid said: "This was a dangerous situation for everyone involved, including police officers and neighbours.

"We discovered around 11 cannabis plants inside the house and recovered two loaded crossbows."
