Some 4.5 kilos of cocaine along with 10 kilos of benzocaine, which can be mixed with the Class A drug to bulk out the amount available for sale, were discovered.

Two vehicles and five properties were searched in the town and in Craigavon on Wednesday.

Two men -both aged 32 - have been charged with possession of Class A drugs and possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

They are to appear at Craigavon Magistrates' Court today.
