TWO MEN HAVE been arrested following a major drugs seizure valued at €441,000 in Dublin. 

Gardaí say they searched a house in a residential estate in Clonsilla, Dublin 15 yesterday and found cocaine with an estimated value of €171,000 and cannabis herb with an estimated value of €270,000.. 

The drugs have been sent for analysis, with gardaí adding that €19,140 in cash, two Rolex watches and various drug paraphernalia were also recovered. 

Two men, aged in their 30s and 40s, were arrested at the scene and taken to Blanchardstown Garda Station where they are still being detained. 

The seizure was made as part of Operation Tara with Chief Superintendent Finbarr Murphy saying it was carried out by a new unit.

“This is an excellent detection by the newly-formed Divisional Drugs Unit, and has disrupted the supply of cocaine and cannabis herb in the Blanchardstown area,” he said.
