Several hundred cannabis plants seized in Lisburn house

Several hundred suspected cannabis plants have been recovered from a house in Lisburn.

They were found along with cultivation equipment during a search of a property in the Old Warren estate around 1300 BST on Monday.

Police said they have an estimated street value of £200,000.

There have been no arrests and enquiries are continuing.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Gillis said "This was a very successful search which has resulted in the seizure of a substantial amount of cannabis plants.

"The seizure will prevent this cannabis from filtering onto our streets and becoming part of the illegal drug trade.

"Taking these drugs out of circulation is further proof of our commitment to tackle the concerns of the local community and address the issues that matter to them."
