Police swoop nets £400k of cannabis

A man in his 40s has been arrested after police seized cannabis with an estimated street value of £400,000.

Detectives swooped on a property in the Coalisland area yesterday. The man was being held in Dungannon last night on suspicion of drugs offences.

SDLP councillor Malachy Quinn welcomed the seizure.

He said: "The availability of drugs is a scourge afflicting communities across Northern Ireland. The discovery and seizure of a significant amount of cannabis in Coalisland is a welcome development."
