Three men have been arrested following the seizure of £1m worth of drugs in Northern Ireland.
The men, aged 51, 27 and 25 were arrested after two cars and a lorry were stopped in the Belfast area.
Drugs were recovered at the scene and after follow up searches in the Greater Belfast area, County Antrim and County Armagh.
60 kilos of cannabis, 50,000 e-tablets, cocaine and amphetamines were found. A large amount of cash was also seized.
Head of the Police Service of Northern Ireland Organised Crime Branch, Detective Chief Superintendent Roy McComb, described the find as "significant".
He said: "Today's successful operation has taken a large quantity of very dangerous drugs off the street at the height of the Christmas party season.
"The sad reality is that these dangerous illegal drugs kill, they ruin lives and destroy communities.
"I have no doubt that lives have been saved as a result of today's major, successful seizure of suspected illegal drugs."
