DRUGS worth more than £650,000 have been seized and four arrests made.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Between Monday and Friday this week, Officers from the Belfast District Support Team (DST) have seized suspected drugs including heroin and herbal cannabis believed to be worth in excess of £655,000 and arrested four people.

“The drug seizures and arrests have been made following searches at locations across south Belfast and the city centre.”

Inspector James Murphy said: “We 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.

“I would repeat our appeal to anyone who can help us identify suspects or lines of enquiry to call the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
