GARDAÍ HAVE MADE a significant seizure of heroin in an operation targeting drug trafficking in the midlands.
Two searches were carried out yesterday by detectives from the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau. The first was of a car in Crumlin, Dublin 12, yesterday afternoon where €300,000 worth of heroin was seized.
A 35-year-old man was arrested at the scene, and is currently in custody at Crumlin Garda Station.
This discovery led gardaí to a house in the Killucan area of Co Westmeath.
A total of €100,000 worth of heroin was searched during a search of the property yesterday evening, and a 26-year-old woman arrested.
She is being held at Mullingar Garda Station.
Gardaí said the investigation is continuing.
