Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Organised Crime Unit have arrested a man following the search of a property in Lisburn yesterday, Thursday 4 May.

Detective Inspector Sweeney said: “The search was conducted as part of an ongoing investigation into organised crime in Northern Ireland and the UK.

“A number of items including an Audi A6, suspected drug documentation, mobile phones and designer jewellery including watches, a Versace bracelet and a Cartier ring were seized during the search.

“The man aged in his 50s was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in supply of possessing a class B drug and possessing criminal property.
