Two men and a woman have been arrested in connection with the seizure of cocaine with an estimated value of €15,000.

The drugs were discovered following the planned search of a house on Ratoath Drive, Finglas West, Dublin yesterday evening at around 6pm.

The two men (one of whom is aged in his mid 20s, and the other a juvenile) and one woman (also a juvenile) were arrested at the scene and detained at Finglas Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

All three were released this evening and a file will be prepared to the Garda Office for Children and Youth Affairs and a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Gardaí from Dublin’s Finglas District Drugs Unit seized the cocaine as part of an ongoing operation into the illegal sale and supply of controlled drugs in the Finglas West area.
