GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED two men after herbal cannabis worth an estimated €220,000 was seized in Dublin.

Last Friday, an operation was carried out targeting organised crime gangs operating in the Cabra and Finglas areas.

It involved the search of two houses in Cabra and Finglas by officers from the Revenue Customs Service, the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau, the Store Street Drugs Unit and K District Community Action Team.

During the searches, two packages containing approximately 11kg of herbal cannabis were seized by customs officers.

A 40-year-old man and a 37-year-old man were arrested at the scene.

They are currently being detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 at Store Street and Cabra Garda Stations.
