1 Mins read

Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch are questioning a 38 year old man in Londonderry today as part of an ongoing investigation into drugs supply into Northern Ireland.

The suspect was arrested in the Manchester area yesterday and brought to Strand Road police station for interview.

Detective Inspector Tom McClure, from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch, said: “This arrest is the latest in Operation Meris which is investigating the supply of large quantities of controlled drugs into and throughout Northern Ireland in 2013-14.

Police seized drugs worth £2.3 million in six interventions. Nine people have already been convicted. Another 16 defendants are awaiting trial. We believe this latest arrest is significant and our enquiries are continuing.”
