A MAN HAS been charged over the seizure of cannabis herb in Co Louth.

Gardaí investigating the sale and supply of controlled drugs in the Co Louth area seized a large quantity of cannabis herb (subject to analysis) on Thursday. They found the drugs during a planned search of a residence in Collon, Co Louth.

The cannabis herb has an estimated street value of €1 million.

A 25-year-old man was arrested in connection with this investigation and was detained at Drogheda Garda Station under the provisions of Section 2 – Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996.

He subsequently appeared at Louth District Court yesterday, Friday 28 September.  Gardaí said that the operation was as result of a Cross Border Joint Action Force, and that investigations are ongoing.

Comments are off as this case is before the courts.
