Three men – two aged in their 30s and another in his 40s – have been arrested and are currently detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 at Ashbourne and Ronanstown Garda Stations. 

Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll, who heads garda operations into organised and serious crime, said: “The seizure of a significant quantity of illicit drugs and the arrest of three suspects demonstrates the value of ongoing positive working relationships forged by An Garda Síochána with partner agencies, in Ireland, with the Revenue Customs Service.

We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to tackle organised crime that impacts negatively on communities.
