Police have arrested four people and seized cash, luxury cars and Rolex watches as part of a major operation against organised crime.
The arrests followed the interception of a van which police say was “forcibly stopped” by officers on Armagh’s Killylea Road at around 3pm on Wednesday.
Around £10,000 in cash was recovered from the van and a man aged 38 was arrested at the scene.
During a subsequent search at a house on Salters Grange Road, Armagh, police seized a Mercedes S63 AMG car and a BMW X5 vehicle.
As the operation continued, a 31-year-old man was detained at a filling station on the Cathedral Road in the city at around 4.30pm.
In a search at Callan Crescent, police recovered an estimated £160,000 in cash and four “high end” designer watches, and arrested a man aged 58 and a 56-year-old woman.
The PSNI said it believes the cash and jewellery to be the proceeds of major drugs criminality.
Those in custody are being held on suspicion of a number of offences including possessing, concealing and converting criminal property, as well as drugs supply offences.
A police spokesman said the PSNI will make Northern Ireland a “hostile environment” for drugs offenders, and added: “We will seek to identify them, disrupt their activities, arrest them and place them before the courts.”
