A MAN’S DUE in court tomorrow after a car crash he was involved in prompted an investigation leading to the discovery of a large haul of cocaine and cutting agent.

The crash happened on Friday in the Springfield Road area of Belfast. The 34-year-old was detained on suspicion of drug offences after the discovery of suspected cutting agent in his vehicle.

In a follow up search in the Edenderry area of the city cocaine worth some £60,000 was uncovered along with another quantity of cutting agent.

In a statement today, the PSNI confirmed a man had been charged with “drugs and motoring offences, including Possession of a Class A Controlled Drug and Possession of a Class A Controlled Drug With Intent to Supply”.

He is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
