Inspector Scott Fallis said: "This is a very significant seizure of drugs in the Omagh area, and one which must be welcomed. Selling drugs, regardless of what they are, within our community, and in many cases to our young people, is repugnant.

"Many young lives are destroyed by drug dealers preying on their vulnerabilities. Life-long dreams and aspirations disappear as dealers get people hooked on these substances, while they the dealers line their pockets with cash."
