A 52-year-old man has been arrested on conspiracy to import and supply cannabis.

Officers from the PSNI Reactive and Organised Crime Branch made the arrest earlier today at an address in the Donegall Road area of Belfast.

Detective Andy Dunlop said : "His arrest follows the seizure of cannabis with an estimated street value of £200,000 by Spanish authorities working with the PSNI and National Crime Agency (NCA).

"I would appeal to anyone involved in the supply of cannabis to consider the consequences. Anyone involved in trafficking any type of controlled drug can expect to face a lengthy period in prison upon conviction".
