Gardai have made a huge seizure of cannabis in south Dublin today.
The seizure was made when members of the force intercepted a vehicle travelling through the Clondalkin area earlier this morning.
After searching the vehicle, Gardai discovered approximately 34kg of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of €680,000 inside.
A 47 year-old Albanian man was arrested at the scene, and remains in custody at Clondalkin Garda Station, where he is being detained under the provisions of Drug Trafficking legislation.
The seizure was made as part of ongoing joint investigations by Gardai targeting drug importations, and was carried out as part of a joint operation between the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau and the Special Crime Task Force.
