PSNI police car

Ballymena Area District Support Team, supported by colleagues, arrested two men and recovered a quantity of Class A controlled drugs on Monday, 17th July.

Constable Waring said:

“Following concerns raised within the local community around drug-related issues, officers conducted a proactive policing operation at a property in Ballymena town centre.

“A small quantity of suspected Class A controlled drugs and other items were recovered and have been taken away for further forensic examinations.

“Two men, aged 47 and 21, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply.

“Both men have since been released on police bail to allow for further enquiries to take place.

“This targeted approach to tackle drug-related criminality followed issues raised by the local community. Our officers are committed to keeping local communities across Ballymena safe from this type of criminality."

We would appeal to anyone with concerns around this type of criminality to contact police on 101. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
