A 49-year-old man will appear in court later in connection to a €610,000 drug seizure in Dublin.

€350,000 worth of cocaine and €260,000 worth of cannabis were seized after searches in Swords on Wednesday night.

Three men were arrested at the scene while two others have been released without charge.

The man will be brought before the courts in Dublin this morning.

They were detained on Wednesday under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996. 

Speaking about the seizure on Wednesday, Assistant Commissioner of Organised and Serious Crime John O’Driscoll said: "An Garda Síochána is committed to disrupting the activities of organised criminals supplying drugs to our communities. 

“This seizure of a substantial quantity of cocaine and cannabis is significant in this regard.”
