A man has been charged with a number of drugs offences following raids in Londonderry on Friday.

The 41-year-old is charged with possessing cocaine and cannabis, possessing cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of class A and class B drugs.

He is due to appear in court on Monday.

Two men - aged 17 and 39 - who were arrested at the same time have been released on police bail.

Cannabis with an estimated street value of £100,000 and cocaine with an estimated value of £25,000 were recovered by officers.

Ch Insp Andy Lemon said the seizure further reinforced police efforts to remove drugs from the streets of Derry.

"The potential harm to the public caused by drugs is an issue that the PSNI take seriously," he said.

"We will continue to work in conjunction with our colleagues from organised crime branch and partner agencies to ensure we bring to justice those involved in dealing in drugs at all levels."
