A man wanted since July 2004 over the seizure of cocaine worth £600,000 will be charged later on Thursday.

He was taken into custody following the production of a European arrest warrant by Irish police earlier in the week.

The 44-year-old is expected to appear at Craigavon Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

The drugs were discovered during a planned stop and search of vehicles in the Bellvue and the Garnet areas of Lisburn on 10 July 2004.
