A quantity of drugs and a sum of cash has been seized by police following the search of a property in Newtownabbey on Wednesday.

Police seized the Class C drugs during an operation conducted with officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force, alongside HMRC officials.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Kelly said: “Officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force, alongside colleagues from HMRC, conducted a search of a residential property earlier today, Wednesday 21 July. Various other items have been seized and these will be the subject of ongoing investigative enquiries.

"The removal of these harmful drugs from our streets reflects our ongoing commitment to safeguarding vulnerable members of our community.

“The possession and distribution of drugs within communities will not and should not be tolerated and we will continue our campaign against those who are intent on profiting from the significant harm caused by drugs criminality and activity.
