Officers from neighbourhood policing and local policing teams were involved in what the PSNI said was a “successful” operation.

In an appeal to parents, Police Mid and East Antrim added: “The investigation is ongoing so information has to be limited.

“Much of the packaging is in the style that would appeal to the young people in our community. On first glance it seems innocent and could be easily missed. Please keep this in mind and if you have any information on this or any crime call us on 101.
