£30,000 worth of drugs seized & three arrests in Derry



Three people have been arrested in Derry after £30,000 of suspected Class A Controlled Drugs was seized by police in Derry yesterday.

It's after a concerned member of the public raised the alarm over a white Insignia being driven dangerously in the Strathfoyle area.

The Insignia was reported to have crashed in to a safety barrier on Temple Road before being driven off dangerously again.

Officers from the COVID Team, District Support Team and Waterside Neighbourhood Policing Team swiftly made their way to Strathfoyle and located the Insignia and its occupants.

During their enquiries they located and seized approximately £30,000 of suspected Class A Controlled Drugs which police say would have inevitably made its way on to the streets and would have caused serious harm.

Police went on to make three arrests for numerous drugs related offences and driving offences.

They also appealing for witnesses - anyone with information in relation to the white Insignia is being asked to police on 101.
