One man has been arrested and a homemade drugs factory dismantled in Fermanagh.

The arrest came after the PSNI intercepted almost £40,000 worth of controlled drugs on Friday which was followed by searches in the Enniskillen and Lisbellaw areas. 

A spokesperson for the PSNI said: "Following the intercept of almost £40,000 worth of controlled drugs, officers from Fermanagh and Omagh District Support Team conducted searches of three premises in the Enniskillen and Lisbellaw areas today.

"Two residential properties and one business property were searched with the assistance of our colleagues in Enniskillen and West Tyrone NPTs.

"As a result, a homemade drugs factory was dismantled and Class B controlled drugs were also seized.

"One male has been arrested and is currently helping us with our enquiries." 

The PSNI also made an appeal for further information as they continue the fight against drugs in the Fermanagh and Omagh area, saying: "If you have information regarding drug activity in your area, please contact us via 101 or anonmously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
