Two men, aged 46 and 43, have been arrested in connection with the seizure of £50,000 worth of suspected Class A drugs in L’Derry.
Officers travelling in the vicinity of the Foyle Bridge on the afternoon of Wednesday 20th December had reason to stop and search a van also travelling on the bridge.
As a result of the search, a number of items including a mobile phone and suspected Class A controlled drugs were seized from the vehicle.
The men were arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of a Class A controlled drug and possession of a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply.
The 46-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of driving while disqualified. They remain in custody at this time, assisting with enquiries.
Detective Inspector Phelan from the PSNI’s Paramilitary Crime Task Force said: “Drug supply and misuse is a vicious cycle that we need to collectively break, and we all have a part to play.
“Our investigation is continuing and I would encourage anyone with information about the supply or use of illegal drugs to contact police on 101.”
