Police in Derry have arrested three men after suspected Class B drugs with a street value of £150,000 were seized in the Waterside.

A PSNI spokesman said two men aged 68 and 50, were arrested following the search of a property in the Waterside area of the city on the evening of Tuesday 25th February.

Another man aged in his 20’s was also arrested in the Waterside area following further enquiries in relation to the seizure.

All three are helping police with their enquiries.

PSNI Inspector Declan McGrath, Waterside Neighbourhood Inspector said “this seizure further reinforces our determination to remove controlled drugs from the streets of the city.

“The PSNI have been working with the local community to tackle drug dealers head on and we will continue to work in conjunction with partner agencies to bring to justice those involved in illegal drugs at all levels.

“Illegal drugs are dangerous and can have a devastating impact on individuals, families and our communities. If you see or know anyone who is dealing drugs in your local area then contact your local police on 0845 600 8000 or alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
