THREE PEOPLE HAVE been arrested after gardaí seized cannabis, crack cocaine and diamorphine worth €37,440. 

Based on intelligence gathered, gardaí yesterday located three males in a tent hidden in dense undergrowth in Clondalkin, Dublin. 

A search of the tent revealed a drug packaging and distribution facility. 

Cannabis valued at €15,080, crack cocaine valued at €6,400 and diamorphine worth €15,960 were seized (all subject to analysis). 

All three males were arrested and are currently detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 at Clondalkin and Ballyfermot Garda Stations. 

Follow-up searches carried out in surrounding areas involving the Garda Dog Unit resulted in the discovery of 108 packets of cigarettes and other tobacco products valued at approximately €1,400. 

These operations represent a significant distribution in drug dealing activity along the canal in Clondalkin, according to gardaí.
