Four people arrested following seizure of £150K worth of cannabis plants

November 19, 2014, 2:07 pm

Four people have been arrested and cannabis plants believed to worth more than £150,000 pounds have been seized by police in Castlewellan.

DCI Ian Wilson said, “Officers carrying out proactive drugs searches at properties in the Circular Road and Corrywood Park areas yesterday uncovered two substantial cannabis factories.

Three individuals, two 33 year old males and a 22 year old woman were detained in the Circular Road area and a 30 year old man was arrested in Corrywood Park.

All four remain in custody this morning assisting with enquiries.

Operations such as this one demonstrate our ongoing commitment to working with communities to tackle drugs, disrupt criminals and keep communities safe.

We are extremely pleased to have shut down these cannabis factories and prevent the drugs they produce from circulating on our streets. Drugs destroy lives and I would continue to encourage anyone with any information about the sale and supply of illegal drugs in the community to contact police on 101 or ring the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
