GARDAÍ AND REVENUE seized €440k worth of drugs after raids in west Dublin last Friday.

A joint operation was conducted by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) and Revenue Customs Service, which resulted in the search of a house and business premises.

During the course of this search, cannabis with an estimated value of €440,000 was seized.

Gardaí arrested a 46-year-old man in connection with this seizure. He was detained at Ronanstown Garda Station under the provisions of Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking Act), 1996.

He has since been released without charge and a file will be prepared for the DPP.
