Two men charged after €7 million worth of cannabis seized

TWO MEN HAVE been charged in connection with the seizure of cannabis worth more than €7 million. 

A joint operation carried out by Revenue customs officers and garda members on Friday resulted in the seizure of 352kg of herbal cannabis.

The illegal drugs arrived in a container from Spain through Dublin Port. 

Gardaí said the two men, aged 47 and 49, were due in court earlier today. 

A 31-year-old man arrested in connection with the seizure has been released without charge. A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
