€1.6m drugs haul: two held

TWO men have been remanded in custody as gardai continue investigations into a €1.6m haul of cannabis plants.

Ming Sun (44) and Xia Hua He (34), both Chinese nationals, were charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and cultivation of cannabis in a warehouse at Trummon, Laghey, Co Donegal, last Friday.

Judge Kevin Kilrane remanded them in custody at a special sitting of Sligo District Court on Saturday night to Harristown District Court next Friday. No application for bail was made.

Meanwhile, gardai continuing their investigation into the discovery of 2,000 cannabis plants have said they were appalled at the primitive living conditions of the two suspects.
