The drugs included heroin, cannabis and other controlled drugs of varying value. 14 people have now been arrested in the Drogheda district and have been charged with offences, principally the possession of controlled substances for sale or supply. All 14 will appear before Drogheda District Court on Friday 1st November 2019.

Chief Superintendent Christy Mangan said: “This is an excellent example of the significant ongoing efforts of local Garda personnel fully supported by National Units in the ongoing battle against organised crime in the Drogheda and surrounding areas.
