A 29 year old man is due in court in Derry today on drugs charges.

The man was arrested in the Claudy area yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation into the supply of controlled drugs in the North West.

The charges are two counts of being concerned in the supply of a class A controlled drug, two counts of conspiracy to supply class A controlled drugs, one count of being concerned in the supply of class B controlled drugs and one count of conspiracy to supply class B controlled drugs.

Police say the arrest was the latest phase of an ongoing operation following seizures of cocaine over the past year worth an estimated £600,000 in Belfast and at Nutts Corner.
