A STUN gun and a large quantity of prescription medication and illegal drugs were seized by police during a search in Mayobridge last week.

Officers conducted the search on Friday, with two women arrested and later released on bail to allow further enquiries to be conducted. Details of the search were revealed by the PSNI yesterday afternoon.

A spokesman for the Service said that as a result of the search “a large quantity of prescription and nonprescription medication was seized along with quantities of suspected cannabis, magic mushrooms, cocaine and over 20 bottles of whiskey, which were seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.”

He added that “a stun gun-type device was also discovered at the property” and the women, aged 29 and 35, “were arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including possession of class A, B and C drugs, possession of a class C drug with intent to supply and possession of a prohibited article.” Also commenting on the seizures was the PSNI’s district commander, Superintendent Norman Haslett.

He said police “are actively committed to removing dangerous drugs from our streets” and “proactively investigate and carry out searches to disrupt this activity, and those involved in the drugs trade.”

The senior officer also appealed to members of the community to come forward if they have any information about the use or supply of drugs.

Police can be contacted on 101, whilst information can be passed anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity by dialling 0800 555111.
