The charges follow a number of searches in the Castlewellan and Ballynahinch areas on Wednesday morning, 4 January 2023.

A 39-year-old man has been charged with six counts of theft relating to the theft of plant hire.

A 50-year-old man has been charged with two counts of the same offence.

 

 

It is believed that the 39-year-old man, along with a 38-year-old woman, were also arrested on suspicion of a number of drug-related offences following the recovery of approximately £30,000 worth of suspected Class A drugs while searches were being carried out in Ballynahinch.

They have both been released on bail, pending further police enquiries.

Both men are due to appear before Newtownards Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 2 February.

As is the usual procedure, all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
