Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch have arrested two men and seized a substantial quantity of suspected herbal cannabis following the search of a vehicle in Ballymena this morning ( Saturday 7th May ).

Detective Inspector Keith Gawley said: “A lorry was stopped on the Moorfields Road in Ballymena by officers and searched shortly after 7am this morning. Suspected cannabis with a street value of approximately £300k was recovered from the vehicle and a 25 year old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of class B drugs, possession of class B drugs with intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of class B drugs. A follow up search was conducted at a house in the Armagh area this afternoon where a 35 year old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs. Both men remain in custody at this time.”
