THREE MEN HAVE been arrested after cocaine and cannabis herb with a street value of around €250,000 was seized by gardaí. 

As a result of an intelligence-led operation targeting an organised criminal group operating in the Dublin and Wicklow areas, a planned operation has been carried out by the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau and local gardaí. 

A number of searches were carried out in the Enniskerry, Tallaght and Ballymun areas yesterday. 

Cocaine and cannabis herb with a street value of around €250,000 (pending analysis) and around €20,000 in cash was seized. 

Two of the men – aged 41 and 37 – were scheduled to appear before Bray District Court this evening charged in connection with the seizure.

A 28-year-old man remains in custody at this time, and he is set to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice tomorrow morning also charged in relation with the seizure.

They are currently detained under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act 1996 at Bray and Ballymun garda stations.
