A man in his 30s has been charged in connection with the seizure of cannabis herb worth over €1,300 yesterday.

Gardai seized the drugs when they attended a crash on the N4 in Maynooth at 2.30pm yesterday.

While assessing the scene they discovered a cache of cannabis herb with an estimated street value of €1,300 concealed inside a vehicle.

“One man in his 30s was arrested and detained at the Leixlip Garda Station following the incident,” a Garda spokesperson said.

The man has been charged in connection with the incident, and he has been released on bail.

It is understood the crash was caused by a blow out, and the vehicle involved had three bald tyres.

A summons was issued to the driver for the condition of the tyres, Gardaí said.
