And following the stop and search of a vehicle on the Moy Road, Dungannon, officers went on to search the driver’s home - where items including £2,500 worth of suspected cannabis, mobile phones and drugs paraphernalia were seized.

PSNI Dungannon also reported seven abandoned calls.

“In total there were seven arrests, and crews are now busy this morning interviewing some of the detained persons, taking the others to Court, etc,” they said on December 28.
