Drugs haul Two men arrested and €105k of suspected drugs seized in Cork raid

Two men have been arrested after gardaí seized €105,000 of suspected cannabis herb in Cork City as part of a major operation. 

Just after 7pm on Monday evening officers from the Cork City Divisional Drugs Unit, accompanied by local uniformed police and detectives, carried out two separate raids, uncovering suspected drugs in both locations.

Gardaí first executed a search warrant at a house on Sundays Well Road where they discovered and removed €85,000 of what is believed to be cannabis herb.

Two men, both aged in their 30s, were arrested at the scene and were brought to Gurranabraher Garda Station.

They are currently detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

A second search warrant was later executed at a house on Blarney Street resulting in the seizure of €20,000 of suspected cannabis herb.

No further arrests were made following this search.

All of the suspected drugs will now be sent to Forensic Science Ireland for analysis.
