Two men and a woman have been charged, following the seizure of €245,000 worth of cocaine in Dublin Airport.
Gardaí at the airport, assisted by personnel from the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) and Customs Officers, seized the large quantity drugs yesterday evening.
At around 7.50pm, customs officers alerted gardaí that they had detained three passengers who arrived on a flight from mainland Europe earlier that day on suspicion of drug-trafficking.
The passengers - two men and a woman, all aged in their 20s - had ingested a combined 280 pellets of suspected cocaine, worth €245,000.
The drugs are now being analysed.
All three passengers were arrested and taken to Ballymun Garda Station, where they are currently being detained under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act 1996.
All three arrested have since been charged in relation to the seizure and are due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice at 10.30am this morning.
