TWO MEN HAVE appeared before Cork District Court after gardaí seized heroin worth an estimated €425,000 last Thursday. 

The men (aged 42 and 57) were charged and appeared before the court yesterday.

Gardaí in Togher arrested the men on Thursday after receiving calls from the local community about “unusual activity”. 

The Divisional Drug Unit carried out a search at Harbour View road late on Thursday night.

During the search, gardaí seized the heroin which is subject to analysis with an estimated street value of €425,000. 

The two men were arrested and detained at Gurranabraher Garda Station on Thursday. Gardaí say investigations are ongoing.
