Two charged over drug seizure

 

Two men were today charged following Northern Ireland’s largest cocaine seizure.

The suspects, aged 38 and 47, were detained after police stopped two vehicles in the Boucher Road area of west Belfast yesterday and discovered £5 million (€5.6million) worth of the drugs.

The men have been charged with a number of drugs offences including conspiracy to supply and will appear at Laganside Magistrates Court in Belfast tomorrow.

A 29-year-old man, also arrested yesterday, remains in custody.
