A seizure of suspected cocaine and cannabis with an estimated value of €750,000 was carried out yesterday in Dublin.
The seizure was made as part of an ongoing operation into the illegal sale and supply of controlled drugs in South Dublin.
The drugs were found following a planned search of a property and vehicles in the Irishtown area of Dublin.
One man in his late 40s was arrested and the scene and detained at Pearse Street Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.
He was released late last night without charge and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks. Drug seizures play a critical role in targeting the livelihood of criminals and reducing their ability to carry out illegal activities.
Drug seizures also help protect communities from the devastating impact of drugs and the associated criminality.
