Police in Derry/Londonderry have seized suspected Class B drugs with an estimated street value of £10,000 during searches conducted in the Waterside area of the city today, Monday 8th April.

District Support Team (DST) officers made the seizures, assisted by Tactical Support Group colleagues, during two searches at addresses this morning. A large sum of cash and drug-related paraphernalia was also seized.

A man, aged 42 years old, has been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences, including Possession of a Class B Controlled Drug, Possession of a Class B Controlled Drug with Intent to Supply, Being Concerned in the Possession of a Class B Controlled Drug and Possessing Criminal property. He remains in custody at this time, assisting police with their enquiries.

Sergeant Moore, from the DST, said: “We are doing all we can to prevent and detect as much drug-related activity as possible and today’s proactive activity is an example of effective community-based policing at its best. The efforts are in keeping with Operation Dealbreaker – that’s our organisational commitment to tackle every aspect of drug misuse across Northern Ireland, and that includes its harrowing impact on the lives and relationships of local people.”

Sergeant Moore added: “Anyone tempted to become involved in illegal drugs should be under no illusion; we will seek to identify them, arrest them and place them before the courts. I would also like to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone with any information about suspected drug dealing in their area to call the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org”
