A large quantity of drugs were discovered by police following a house search in Armagh on Thursday.
Two people were subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B controlled drugs and possession of Class A and B controlled drugs.
A PSNI spokesperson, explained what happened: “On arrival [at the property in Armagh] the residents decided it would be best to throw a shopping bag over the fence into a neighbouring garden.
“After a bit of fence hopping the bag was found and when we looked inside there was a large quantity of suspected herbal cannabis.
“Then during the search of the house more items were found; including suspected Class A controlled drugs, sets of scales and suspected bags used for dealing drugs.
“For the 2 people living there, they have been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B controlled drugs and possession of Class A and B controlled drugs.
“I know some people on here have previously felt our OPs with HMRC and DVA aren’t targeting real criminals so hopefully this shows we do carry out a wide range of duties and target all levels of crime!
“A large quantity of drugs have been removed from the streets and that means away from children.
“Hopefully this is a message to local drug dealers that we know what you’re up to and it’s only a matter of time before we come knocking on your door.”
