A Spanish man is due before the courts tomorrow after he was arrested entering the country with around €6,000 worth of cannabis.

The man was stopped by Customs officials at Dublin Airport after midnight last night. 

Officers believed that he had ingested a controlled substance, which was later found to be cannabis resin.

The man was taken to Beaumont Hospital and then Ballymun Garda Station, where he passed 31 pellets of the drug.

He was charged and will appear at the Criminal Courts of Justice on Parkgate Street tomorrow.
