Cabra, Dublin: Three Men Arrested As Gardai Seize Cannabis Worth €400,000

7 Feb

Three men have been arrested after the drugs squad seized 32 kilos of cannabis in a raid on suspected dealers.

Gardaí say one of the men is a member of an organised criminal gang dealing in cocaine cannabis and heroin and has been a target of the National Drugs Unit and the Organised Crime Unit for some time.

He was arrested along with another man after the drugs were loaded into a van in Cabra last night.

A third man was arrested in the house where the drugs were stored.

They were arrested following a joint operation by the Garda National Drugs Unit and the Organised Crime Unit after a van was loaded and stopped on Faussagh Avenue Road in Cabra with 25kg of cannabis herb.

Another 7kg was found when the house the men came out from with the boxes was searched.


Two men, aged 25 and 40, were initially detained after 25 kilos of herbal cannabis was recovered on Fassaugh Avenue, Cabra, north Dublin.

In a follow-up search, a 31-year-old man was arrested after another seven kilos of the drug was found nearby on the Carnlough Road.

A Garda spokesman said the cannabis has a street value of about 400,000 euro.

The men were taken in for questioning to Cabra and Finglas Garda stations under section two of the Drug Trafficking Act.

The spokesman said the seizures, involving the National Drugs Unit and National Bureau of Criminal Investigation, were part of an ongoing intelligence-led operation into the sale and supply of drugs in the Dublin area.
