Gardaí have seized €600,000 worth of cannabis during a search of a vehicle in north county Dublin.

The search which took place as part of intelligence led investigations took place near Man O War on Monday evening.

The drugs were found concealed in the vehicle and a 34-year-old man was arrested.

He is currently being detained at Balbriggan garda station or questioning under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

A spokesperson for gardaí said:

"These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks. 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."
