The accused is charged with possession of a class A drug, possession of a class B drug, possession of a class A drug with intent to supply, possession of a class B drug with intent to supply, being concerned in the supply of a class A drug and being concerned in the supply of a class B drug.

A 17-year-old male also arrested has been released pending a report to the PPS.

A 39-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

PSNI area commander Chief Inspector Andy Lemon said: "This substantial seizure further reinforces our determination to remove controlled drugs from the city of Derry.

"The potential harm to the public caused by drugs is an issue that the PSNI take seriously.

"We will continue to work in conjunction with our colleagues from Organised Crime Branch and partner agencies to ensure we bring to justice those involved in dealing in drugs at all levels."
