Police in Newtownabbey have seized cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £32,000 following the planned search of a house in the Hillview Park area.
Cultivation equipment was also seized during the raid which took place on Thursday, November 13.
A 29-year-old male was arrested and is currently assisting police with their enquiries.
The seizure follows latest police results of a major anti-drugs operation which they have been running in Northern Ireland for the past year concerning the problem of organised cannabis cultivation.
The PSNI Drug Squad and uniformed officers from all policing districts in Northern Ireland have shut down a substantial number of factories involved in the cultivation of cannabis plants, disrupting and dismantling organised criminal activity.
This operation began late last year.
Since then, the PSNI have: searched 103 properties; recovered 27,103 cannabis plants with a street value of £13.5m; seized 196 kilos of herbal cannabis with a street value of £2m; seized £150,000 in cash; and seized substantial amounts of equipment used in the cultivation process.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Peter Moore, from PSNI Drug Squad, said: “It would be foolish to say we have completely eradicated the problem of cannabis factories in Northern Ireland but we have made a significant number of seizures and arrests. “But we cannot be complacent when dealing with organised crime gangs.
