Man arrested after police seize drugs from vehicle

By Staff Reporter

Police in Belfast have arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of smuggling cannabis.

Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop said the man was arrested yesterday in Ainsworth Avenue "after great work by district colleagues acting on their investigative suspicions".

"His arrest follows the seizure of cannabis with an estimated street value of £140,000 by the officers from a nearby vehicle," he said.

"We are also conducting follow-up searches and liaising with other law enforcement partners.

"The seizure again reinforces the determination of PSNI to keep people safe by preventing controlled drugs from reaching the streets.

"I believe it may be linked to an earlier seizure when a 52-year-old man was arrested and £200,000 worth of cannabis found at an address in the Donegall Road area of Belfast on March 2, 2017."
