By Steven Alexander

Police claimed they had smashed a drugs gang last night after seizing cannabis with a street value of more than £400,000.

Two men aged 23 and 48 were arrested on suspicion of drugs trafficking along with a female aged 38. All three were last night assisting police with their inquiries.

Searches across Belfast yesterday were linked to the seizure of cannabis at Greenville Road on Wednesday, when suspected cannabis valued at £60,000 was discovered. Cannabis worth an approximate £20,000 was seized from Evelyn Avenue yesterday.

Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop said: "I am satisfied that we have today dismantled another criminal gang suspected of involvement in organised crime of this nature."
