Mid Ulster District Support Team officers arrested a man and located suspected Class A drugs following a stop-and-search in the Cookstown area.

Inspector Hughes said: “The man, aged in his 20s, was stopped by police after he attempted to evade officers during the early hours of this morning, Saturday 11th May.

“A quantity of suspected Class A drugs were located on the man – along with a large sum of cash as a result of the search.

“Officers conducted a follow up search at a nearby property and also seized a small quantity of suspected Class A drugs and drug-related paraphernalia,

“The man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.

“He was later released on police bail to allow for further enquiries to take place into the investigation.

“Drug supply and misuse is a vicious cycle that we need to collectively break, and we all have a part to play.

“Our investigation is continuing and I would encourage anyone with information about the supply or use of illegal drugs to contact police on 101.”
