Several arrests made in connection with cannabis seizure and burglaries

More than €90,000 worth of cannabis herb has been seized by gardaí as part of Operation Thor.

Gardaí from the Kildare District assisted by the Regional Support Unit carried out a number of searches across Kildare from 7am last Friday to 4am today.

This operation consisted of 11 searches of private residences, and a number of arrests were made.

Files will now be prepared for the information of the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to the arrests.

Twenty-two checkpoints were also carried out by gardaí and the Taxi Regulator across the Kildare district over the same period of time, resulting in a number of road traffic offences being disclosed.

Two people were arrested and detained on suspicion of carrying out burglaries.

They have since been released without charge and a file will now be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
