Man and woman detained after allegedly ingesting 280 pellets of cocaine

Gardaí seized the drugs shortly before 8pm on Sunday evening.

TWO PEOPLE IN their 20s have been charged and a third has been arrested after €245,000 worth of cocaine was seized at Dublin Airport.

The seizure was made shortly before 8pm on Sunday evening, when customs officers told gardaí that they had detained three passengers who had arrived from mainland Europe earlier that day on suspicion of drug trafficking.

The passengers, two men and a woman, had allegedly ingested a combined 280 pellets of suspected cocaine.

All three were arrested and taken to Ballymun garda station under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act 1996.

One of the men and the woman were later charged and are before the courts this morning, while the second man remains in garda custody.
