Man arrested as part of nationwide investigation – Portstewart

Police have released information where a 26 year old man had been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

It follows a search at a property in Portstewart yesterday (Monday 27 July 2020) as part of a proactive nationwide investigation into Organised Crime led by the National Crime Agency.

Detective Chief Inspector Cummings said, “This search and arrest are further evidence of the commitment of PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit to tackling criminality linked to illegal drug dealing activity.

“Drugs cause misery to users and their families and the proceeds of their sale very often go to fund paramilitary activity. We urge anyone with information about criminality linked to drugs to contact police on 101 or anonymously through the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
