GARDAÍ HAVE SEIZED cocaine worth an estimated €130,000 in separate raids in Dublin and Waterford.

A man in his 30s was arrested after drugs worth an estimated €70,000 were seized from a home in Tramore in Co Waterford earlier today.

Gardaí made the arrest today as part of ongoing investigations targeting organised crime groups.

A separate raid was carried out on a house in Tallaght where €60,000 worth of cocaine was seized. No arrests were made.

The intelligence-led operation in Waterford was conducted by the Garda Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau and Revenue’s Customs Service supported by officers from the Waterford Divisional Drugs Unit.

The arrested man is currently being held at Tramore Garda Station under the provisions of Section 2 Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

Gardaí said that drug seizures play a critical role in targeting the livelihood of criminals and reducing their ability to carry out illegal activities.
