A 35-year-old woman has appeared in court this afternoon charged in connection with the seizure of cocaine and heroine with an estimated street value of €210,000 last night.

Gardai seized the drugs during a planned search of a house at Harelawn Park, Clondalkin at around 9.30pm.

Cocaine with an estimated street value of €170,000 was seized, as well as diamorphine, otherwise known as heroin, with a street value of €40,000.

The 35-year-old woman was arrested at the scene and was scheduled to appear before a sitting of Dublin District Court at 4.30pm today.

The search was part of an intelligence-led operation tackling the sale and supply of controlled drugs in the west area of Dublin.

A garda spokesperson said its operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to "disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks".

Gardaí from the Ronanstown Drug Unit were involved in the operation.
