A man was being quizzed last night after the seizure of €3.5m of drugs.

Some 400kg of cannabis resin and 50kg of cannabis herb were discovered during the intelligence-led, planned raid on a premises near Malahide Road, Coolock, north Dublin.

About 8kg of tablets - which are yet to be analysed - were also found.

The joint operation was carried out between the Garda National Drugs Unit and Revenue Customs.

A suspect aged in his 20s has been detained at Santry Garda Station under the provisions of Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996.
