Over the weekend, detectives carried out a planned search of a house in the Easton area of Leixlip, Co Kildare.

Gardaí executed a warrant at the house on Saturday, where they discovered around €130,000 worth of drugs, including cocaine and MDMA.

The haul will now be sent forward for analysis.

No arrests were made during this phase of the operation, but investigations are ongoing.

Gardaí said the operation was part of a continuing investigation into the sale and supply of controlled drugs in the Leixlip area.

The investigations are being led by the local detectives unit based at Leixlip garda station.

The drugs bust is the latest to be carried out by gardaí in the Kildare division.

In a separate operation in May, a foreign national aged in his 40s was arrested after a suspected grow-house was uncovered in Newbridge.

As part of a Garda probe, a property in the Rosconnell area of the town was searched.

During the operation, a quantity of cannabis was seized at different stages of growth, with an estimated street value in excess of €60,000.

A man in his 40s, originally from Eastern Europe, was also arrested.
