£5,000 worth of cannabis seized in Derry

The police in Londonderry have seized 27 bags of herbal cannabis worth about £5,000.

The drugs were found in a house in Greenhaw Crescent on Friday morning.

They will now be sent for detailed analysis to determine the quality of the cannabis.

A 38-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man have been arrested.

The Foyle Area Commander, Chief Inspector Gary Eaton, said it clearly reflected the police's determination to treat drugs as a key priority.

"This is the second time in a few days local police have recovered a substantial quality of drugs that were destined to be sold on the streets."
