Three quizzed after cocaine factory uncovered

Three people were being questioned today over the discovery of a cocaine factory and €200,000 of the drug.

Gardai made the haul after a series of searches in the Tallaght, Walkinstown and Crumlin areas of Dublin last night.

During the searches of residential properties officers uncovered a sophisticated cocaine factory and also seized a substantial amount of cash.

Two males and one female in their early 30s were arrested and taken to Kevin Street and Kilmainham garda stations.

They can be held for up to seven days under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act.

The intelligence-led operation was carried out by gardai at Kevin Street investigating organised crime in the south inner city.

A garda spokesman said investigations are ongoing.
