Woman faces drugs trafficking and money laundering charges

Police investigating a "sophisticated drugs network" with links to Northern Ireland have charged a 24-year-old woman with drugs trafficking.

The woman, who is also charged with money laundering, is due to appear in court in Belfast on Thursday.

The police said it was the latest stage in a complex investigation and follows the seizure of £560,000 worth of cannabis in Belfast earlier this month.

Two men have been charged in connection with the seizure.

A 29-year-old woman who was also arrested has been released on bail.
