Police have made a major drugs seizure in Co Antrim today.

Officers found approximately 15,000 diazepam tablets during a house search in Carrickfergus.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested in the Castlemara area and is being interviewed at Musgrave Police Station.

Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop, of the PSNI’s Reactive and Organised Crime Branch, said: “The illegal possession or supply of diazepam is a criminal offence. It is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act. People should only take such medication when it is prescribed to them by a medical professional.”
