A MAN IN his 30s has been arrested in Kildare following a search operation in three Leinster counties.

Six separate searches of premises in Co Kildare, Co Carlow and Co Dublin were made as part of Operation Thor – a garda operation focusing on organised crime operations in Ireland.

A small amount of drugs were found at each of the six premises.

The man is being detained at a Kildare garda station under Section Four of the Criminal Justice Act.
