Arrests after drugs and cash seized in Ballymena

Two people have been arrested following the seizure of items including drugs and cash in Ballymena.

A police spokesperson said the Ballymena Local Policing Team seized approximately 1kg of suspected class B controlled drugs, scales, phones and cash last night (Saturday, March 12).

Also seized were ‘sweets’ which police suspect to contain THC - tetrahydrocannabinol.

“These are becoming more and more prevalent and could be easily mistaken for the genuine shop bought versions.
