Cannabis with a street value of £17,500 has been discovered at a house in Lurgan.

The quantity of both herbal cannabis and cannabis resin was seized in the River Glade Manor area of the town last Monday (September 16).

Sergeant Kearney said: “Following a search of a property in the area last week, a 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B controlled drug and possession of a Class B controlled drug with intent to supply.

“The man has since been released on bail, pending further enquiries.

“I would urge anyone with information about the sale and supply of illegal drugs to get in touch with police on 101.

“Alternatively, information can be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
