A BRITISH man charged with drug dealing has been remanded in custody to appear in court again on Wednesday.

Matthew Waugh (25) of Sackville, Ardfert, Co Kerry was brought before a special sitting of Killarney District Court on Saturday night charged with two counts of possessing cannabis for sale or supply and a further charge of possessing cocaine for sale or supply.

The charges followed a raid on a rented house in Ardert on Saturday by gardai in which about €100,000 worth of cannabis and €4,000 worth of cocaine was seized.

There was also over €3,700 in cash recovered at the house.

The court heard more significant charges are likely to follow.
