They drugs were found in a plastic bag on a ledge in the ceiling after they removed the tiles.
Sgt Barry McParland, of Springfield Safer Neighbourhoods team, said: “This operation demonstrates the effectiveness of estate sweeps and sends out a message to the criminal fraternity that we will find their drugs, wherever they choose to hide them. I hope that by removing these drugs we can combat crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.”
