Police said Lurgan Neighbourhood team were on patrol in the Shankill area of the town on Saturday night.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “A male in the Shankill area caught the attention of a crew on patrol, and the search revealed some class A drugs, which he was promptly arrested for.

“Getting class A off the streets is great on it’s own, but a subsequent search of his house turned up even more goodies, meaning he was further arrested for handling stolen goods (after around £1k worth of perfume was found), possession of class B and possession of class B with intent to supply.
