THREE MEN HAVE been arrested following the seizure of cocaine with an estimated street value of €1.5 million along with heroin estimated to be worth €500,000 from an apartment complex in Navan, Co Meath.

Some 22kg of cocaine was discovered in an underground car park of the complex last night. A follow-up search uncovered a further 1kg of heroin, RTÉ reports.

As well as drugs, £50,000 (€58,000) was seized from the location by the national drugs squad, revenue officers and drugs units from Meath and Kildare.

The raid was launched after officials detected 22kg of cocaine passing through Dublin Airport, concealed in a parcel from South America, the Irish Independent reports.

The men arrested are aged 31, 34 and 36 and are being held under drug trafficking laws.

Two of the men are being held at Kells Garda Station and one is being held at Finglas Garda Station.
