Two people have been arrested in Coleraine in connection with the production and supply of the class A drug cocaine.
Officers from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch carried out searches at four addresses across Coleraine today as part of a proactive operation against what we believe is an organised crime gang involved in the production and supply of cocaine.
At one of the addresses we uncovered a cocaine press and a large quantity of bulking agent along with drugs paraphernalia and other items used in cocaine production.
We have arrested a 30 year old woman and a 34 year old man on suspicion of a number of drugs offences including ‘possession of class A drugs’ and ‘possession of class A drugs with intent to supply’ as well as ‘conspiracy to supply class A drugs’ and ‘being concerned in the production of class A drugs, namely cocaine.’
Both individuals remain in custody this evening assisting us with our enquiries.
