Two charged over £1m Belfast cannabis seizure

By Michael McHugh

Two people have been charged after police officers seized cannabis worth £1m in Northern Ireland.

A woman (37) and a 38-year-old man were detained in south Belfast on Thursday as part of an investigation into the supply of illegal drugs.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said: "Searches were carried out and cannabis with an approximate street value of £1m recovered.

"These arrests and seizures are evidence of our ongoing commitment to removing and disrupting the illegal supply of drugs into Northern Ireland.

"The seizure of these drugs has removed a substantial amount of cannabis and prevented £1m from falling into the hands of organised criminals who profit from others' misery."

Det Insp Mullan appealed for members of the public to disclose any information about drugs in their local area.

The pair were charged with a number of offences to appear in court on Saturday morning.
