Pair quizzed in connection with €1m drugs haul

Two men were being questioned by detectives today following a massive drugs seizure.

Heroin and cocaine, believed to have a street value of almost €1m, were found in Dublin at around 8.30pm last night after a surveillance operation by officers from Pearse Street Garda Station.

It is understood the heroin alone was worth around €900,000.

Gardaí swooped on an underground car park in Santry, in the north of the city, and seized several vehicles.

Gardaí said the men, aged between 30 and 35, are being questioned under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act at Pearse Street Garda Station.

They can be held for up to seven days.
