A 20-year-old man has been charged with cultivating cannabis, possession of a class B controlled drug, possession of a class C controlled drug and possession of a class C controlled drug with intent to supply.

He is due to appear at Lisburn Magistrates Court on Thursday, March 3. As is normal procedure, all charges are reviewed by the PPS.

The charge follows a house search by Colin Neighbourhood and the West Belfast local policing team in the Dunmurry area last Thursday morning, February 4. The 20 year old man was arrested at the time.

Sergeant Claire Lloyd said: “Anyone who has any information about the possession or supply of illegal drugs in their area should contact their local police on the non emergency number 101.

“Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
