€1m drugs haul in north Kildare

GARDAI seized high-purity cocaine and cannabis herb with a conservative street value of close to €1m when they uncovered a drug-processing plant in north Kildare yesterday evening.

Officers are satisfied that the find has disrupted the trafficking plans of a major crime gang.

They were jubilant last night at the size of the seizure, which took place as the drugs were being prepared for sale in the run-up to Christmas.

Gardai found the plant when they raided a rented premises a couple of miles outside Kilcock.
