A 43-year-old man charged over a €300,000 cannabis seizure at his north Dublin home has been granted bail but has been ordered not to leave his home county.

Gerald O’Donnell from Dun Emer Place, in Lusk was arrested on Thursday evening.

He was detained under section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996 at Balbriggan Garda station.

He was charged on Friday night with possessing cannabis at his home address and having it for sale or supply contrary to the Misuse of Drugs Act.

He appeared before Judge Anthony Halpin at Dublin District Court on Saturday.

Garda Shaun McElroy told the court the accused made no reply when charged.

There was no objection to bail subject to conditions.

The accused, who had no legal representation, said he agreed to the terms.

He was ordered to surrender his passport within 24 hours, provide gardai with his mobile phone number and be contactable at all times, sign on daily at Balbriggan Garda station and not to travel outside the county of Dublin.

Garda McElroy sought an eight-week adjournment to obtain directions from the DPP.

Bail was set in Mr O'Donnell's own bond of €200 and he was ordered to appear at Balbriggan District Court on July 8 next.
