Two Arrests Made After Drugs Valued at 1.6 Million Euro Seized in Dublin

Two men have been arrested after drugs valued at 1.6 million euro were seized in north Dublin.

A number of searches were carried out on Friday and Saturday by the Dublin Crime Response Team (DCRT).

During the searches, cocaine with an estimated value of 910,000 euro and cannabis herb valued at 720,000 euro were found.

The drugs are to be sent to Forensics Science Ireland for further analysis.

A man aged in his 40s and a man in his 50s have been arrested as part of the investigation.

The men are being detained at Garda stations in Dublin under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

Assistant commissioner Angela Willis of the Dublin Metropolitan Region said: “This is yet another example of the continuous efforts by members of An Garda Siochana to target criminality that causes the most harm in our city centre and throughout communities across the region.

“This seizure of significant quantities of illicit drugs in a specific targeted operation, in addition to a number of other significant seizures in the city centre and across the region in the past number of days, demonstrates our continuous commitment to removing harmful drugs from circulation and bringing those willing to engage in the supply of illicit drugs before the courts.”
