Two quizzed over cannabis seizure in Ballymena

Two men are being questioned by police after a large quantity of cannabis plants were discovered in Ballymena.

The men, aged 48 and 18, were arrested yesterday on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply.

The cannabis haul, which was uncovered during a planned operation in the Deerfin Road area, has an estimated value of £135,000.

Detective Inspector Richard Carmichael appealed for anyone with information about illegal drugs to get in touch.

"I would appeal for anyone with information on illegal drugs, to contact local police on 0845 600 8000 or, alternatively, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111," he said.
