Gardai were assisted by members from the District Drugs Units at Lucan and Ronanstown.

During the course of the search, approximately €23,100 of suspected diamorphine and approximately €20,020 of suspected cocaine (both pending analysis) were seized.

 

Suspected drug paraphernalia including scales, presses, mixing agents and plastic wraps were also seized.
