A man wanted by police for two years was discovered by officers in the attic of a south Belfast home.

The South Belfast Neighbourhood Policing Team carried out a search of a property on the Donegall Road on Friday morning.

A male was arrested for possession of a class B controlled drug with intent to supply.

However, a check of the roof space saw officers discover a male who had been wanted by police.

He was also arrested for possession of a class B controlled drug with intent to supply along with two bench warrants, meaning he had failed to appear in court when he was supposed to.

A PSNI spokesperson said: "South Belfast Neighbourhood Policing team carried out a proactive house search in the Donegall Road area this morning.

"A male was arrested for possession of a class B controlled drug with intent to supply. A check of the roof space turned up something interesting also. A male who had been wanted by Police for over two years was located hiding up above. "
