£260k drug haul at port

CANNABIS with a potential street value of £260,000 was yesterday seized at the Loch Ryan Port in Cairnryan.

At about 6.50 am on Wednesday, officers stopped a car at the port and during a search of the vehicle a significant quantity of the Class B drug was recovered.

A 27-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the recovery and is due to appear before Stranraer Sheriff Court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Caryn McIndewar said: “Our officers are committed to disrupting the drugs trade in local communities and will rigorously pursue every means possible to protect members of the public from this harmful criminality.

“Seizures such as this show our commitment nationally to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious and Organised Crime Strategy.

“Information from local communities is integral to our work and I would urge anyone with concerns about drugs activity in their area to contact Police Scotland on 101. Alternatively you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
