Police have dismantled a cannabis factory and seized cannabis plants worth £20,000 in the Cullaville area of South Armagh.

Officers raided an uninhabited cottage in the Annaghad area in the early hours of Tuesday and found what they described as “a very professional operation”.

They say it had been set up in a rural location in an effort to avoid detection.

PSNI Sergeant William Nulty added: “I am very pleased to have taken these drugs off our streets.

“No arrests have been made at this stage, but our enquiries into the matter are ongoing.”

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
