Man charged with drug-related offences after raid on County Armagh house

Police operation was mounted to target an organised crime gang in the area

A man has been charged with a number of drug related offences following a raid on a house last year.

Police in Craigavon searched a property in the north Lurgan area a number of months ago.

The man was subsequently arrested during an operation carried out to target an organised crime gang in the area.

He was released on bail pending forensic examination of suspected drugs seized.

Police have now charged him with possession of a Class A drug, possession of a Class B drug, being concerned in the supply of a Class B drug.

He has also been charged with having in his possession criminal property, namely money.

The man will now appear in court next month.

Police have thanked the public for their help and renewed calls for anyone with information on drugs to get in touch.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Charges like this don’t come without you, and information from within communities.

“Help us help you continue to take firm and robust action against drug dealers. Call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or drop us a PM (on Facebook).”
