The officers – who were out and about in Carbrain on Saturday, October 16 – had reason to speak to a man on Glenhove Road.

The 37-year-old male was subsequently searched and a quantity of green herbal material, believed to be drugs, was recovered – but that was not the end of the matter.

Police enquiries continued and a search warrant was granted for a property on Glenhove Road.

Police were sent round to the address to deal with the matter and it was at this point another male was dealt with.

It’s been confirmed that an 18-year-old male was then issued with a reportable police warning for possession of a quantity of green herbal material believed to be drugs.
