GARDAÍ HAVE SEIZED €3.5 million worth of suspected cocaine in north Dublin this afternoon. 

Officers from the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) conducted a search at a location in Swords, Dublin, where they found the drugs.

The drugs were hidden in a fruit container. 

One man, aged 33, was arrested and is currently being held at Swords Garda Station. 

Speaking today, Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll who heads Organised and Serious Crime said: “Participation by a number of sections within An Garda Síochána with assistance provided by Customs Revenue Service in this operation, has resulted in another significant seizure of a substance believed to be cocaine, which prevents further damage being inflicted within our communities.”
