A man has been arrested after heroin, cocaine and cannabis with an estimated street value of over €130,000 were found at a house in Dublin. 

The drugs were seized earlier today at a property on Kilmartin Drive in Tallaght.

The arrested man, who is in his 30s, is being held at Tallaght garda station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996. 

Gardaí said the house was searched as part of an operation targeting the sale and supply of controlled drugs in the area.

"These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks," a spokesperson for the force said.
