Saturday, 16 June 2012
It happened at Armagh Road in Portadown just after 8am on Saturday.
Officers from the Organised Crime Branch pulled the vehicle over and found the drugs.
A 29-year-old man was arrested and later charged with possession of class B drugs and intent to supply.
He is expected to appear before Lisburn Magistrates Court on Monday.
Craigavon Mayor Carla Lockhart commended the PSNI operation.
"I trust that the offenders and those involved in this activity will face the full rigours of the law," the DUP representative added.
"Unfortunately illegal drugs and substances are all too common within our communities.
"Their consequences for families are devastating and destroying young lives. The public should be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to the PSNI."
