Man arrested following seizure of drugs, cash, and cars in Armagh city

A man has been arrested following a large-scale search operation of a property in Armagh on Tuesday afternoon.

The man, aged in his 30s was detained following the seizure of suspected Class A drugs, a large quantity of cash, and other items from properties in the city.

Inspector Hicks said: “District Support Team officers, together with TSG officers and Armagh NPT officers, conducted a number of searches in the area yesterday morning.

“Two vehicles were also seized, as well as drugs paraphernalia, mobile phones, computers, and other items.

“A man aged in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of a number of offences, including possession of a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply, possessing criminal property, and being concerned in the supply of a Class A controlled drug.

“He was later released on bail to allow for further police enquiries.”

Inspector Hicks continued: “Our enquiries are ongoing, and I would continue to encourage members of the public with concerns about drugs or drug dealing to get in touch and enable us to investigate.
“The number to call is 101. Alternatively, information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”

Inspector Hicks added: “Police remain fully committed to tackling the scourge of drugs in our communities, and we will continue to proactively investigate and carry out searches linked to the drugs trade.

“The sale, supply and consumption of these incredibly harmful drugs is doing nothing but ruining lives and lining the pockets of organised criminals. We are determined to disrupt their activity and anyone involved in the drugs trade, or anyone tempted to become involved should be under no illusion – we will seek to identify them, arrest them and place them before the courts.”
