psni55Officers from Armagh Neighbourhood Policing Team, supported by officers from Operational Support Department, have seized a large quantity of cocaine and a suspected firearm following a search of a house in the Carbry Heights area of Keady this morning, Friday 10th February. Two suspects, a 39 year old male and a 36 year old female, have been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences and are currently in custody being questioned by Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch.
  Detective Inspector Brian Foster said, “Following a search this morning police have removed cocaine with an estimated street value of £200,000. A large quantity of cash, a Lexus car and a KTM Motorcycle have also been seized. “I am delighted that this large amount of drugs and a firearm have been removed from our streets. This is another example of the PSNI’s commitment to tackling the issue of illegal drugs in our society and we are determined to continue to combat illegal drug supply and use.
  He added, “If you know anything about the illegal supply or use of drugs in your area, please contact your local police station on the non-emergency number 101. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving your details, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.” Newry & Armagh Sinn Féin Assembly candidate Cathal Boylan commended the PSNI.
