Seven men have been arrested after Gardaí seized drugs worth €2m in Dublin in the last two days.
On Wednesday, Gardaí searched a home in the Beaumont area of Dublin and found bottles of wine and champagne they now believe contain cocaine in liquid form.
A man in his 20s was arrested and is being held at Ballymun Garda Station.
In a second operation, Gardaí intercepted a vehicle on the M50 and searched premises in in Palmerstown and Dublin city Centre.
They found cannabis, cocaine and heroin they believe to be worth €2m.
The officers also found a “substantial amount of cash” they believe to be the proceeds of drug trafficking.
Five men, aged in their 20s to 40s were arrested and are being held at various Garda stations around Dublin.
A sixth man aged in his 30s was arrested today after a follow-up operation in the city centre. He has been taken to Donnybrook Garda Station.
Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll said: “The outcome of operational activity undertaken by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB), supported by a number of other specialised units within the Garda Síochána, over the past twenty-four hours, is very significant and reflects exceptional policing skills, along with dedication and bravery on the part of the personnel involved.”
"Again today, the Garda Síochána and the people of Ireland reap the benefits of the Garda Síochána's outreach at a global level.
"Large quantities of drugs have been seized, along with a significant quantity of money suspected to be proceeds of drug trafficking.
"Persons believed to operate at a significant level within the world of organised crime have been identified and arrested.
"A drug trafficking route has been identified and disrupted and a new method of concealing controlled substances has been identified and exposed."
