They were arrested on Tuesday after police searched a house in the Rathenraw area, where the haul with an estimated street value of £70,000 was discovered - as well as a sawn-off shot gun.

The pair have been charged with drugs trafficking and money laundering.

One of the men has also been charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition in suspicious circumstances.

Both men are due to appear before Coleraine Magistates' Court on Wednesday.

It's spelled 'Mephedrone'

It is not called methadrone, it is called mephedrone. Eg plant food. Methadone which you might be getting confused with is a heroin substitute. Please correct this as it gives out the wrong information.
