Two women arrested over £240,000 drugs haul in Co Antrim

Two women have been arrested after drugs with an estimated street value of £240,000 were seized in Co Antrim.

The suspects aged 46 and 27 were detained during a planned police raid of a property at Doagh Road in Newtownabbey.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Gillis, from the PSNI's reactive and organised crime branch, said: "This was a significant find and has taken potentially dangerous drugs off the streets."

"This seizure is another example of PSNI commitment to policing the threat posed by drugs in Northern Ireland. We will continue to work alongside our partner agencies in relation to the illegal supply of drugs.

"PSNI remains committed to tackling the sale and supply of drugs in Northern Ireland and will continue to carry out intelligence led and proactive operations like this one. Information from communities is vital in this and we would encourage people to continue to raise their suspicions with us and enable us to take action against those involved in this kind of criminality."

The women remain in police custody and are being questioned about the possession and supply of class B drugs.
