Two men have been arrested in Lisburn and Londonderry after police seized drugs with an estimated street value of £750,000.

The pair, aged 26 and 42, were arrested on suspicion of supplying cocaine and cannabis.

A house was also searched in the Buncrana Road area of Derry as part of the operation and mobile phones were seized.

The men were last night being questioned by police.

Detective Inspector Tom McClure said: "The arrests are linked to the seizure of a substantial quantity of cocaine and herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of over £750,000 that was seized from a vehicle that was stopped by police in Belfast on February 8, 2017.

"This was a significant haul of drugs recovered by our officers as part of a proactive operation targeting criminals intent on making money from illicit drugs."
