More than €600k worth of cannabis found at 'sophisticated factory'
The PSNI have arrested two men.

POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have found as much as £500,000 (€620,000) worth of cannabis plants at a grow house in Armagh.

The discovery of what the PSNI is calling a “very sophisticated cannabis factory” was made earlier this afternoon at a house on Church Street in Portadown.

“Two men have been arrested by police on suspicion of a range of drugs offences,”  Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Wright said.

He added that they are “currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries”.
