The man was released on bail on Monday night pending examination of the drugs seized and other enquiries.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Concerned members of the community had spoken up. They weren’t happy with what they believed was going on, and so they had a word with us. They’d done their bit, and so it was time for us to do ours.

“Let this be a warning to anyone who wants to deal death in our area – it won’t be tolerated. Not by us, not by the local community.”
