He is due to appear before Tallaght District Court this morning at 10.30am.

Gardai seized the drugs following the planned search of a premises at Russell Downs, Jobstown, by the Tallaght District Drugs Unit assisted by local gardaí yesterday afternoon at around 2pm.

The 37-year-old man was arrested at the scene and detained at Tallaght Garda Station under Section 2 Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

A garda spokesperson said he remains in Garda custody.

“These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks,” the spokesperson said.

“Drug seizures play a critical role in targeting the livelihood of criminals and reducing their ability to carry out illegal activities. Drug seizures also help protect communities from the devastating impact of drugs and the associated criminality.”
