A man was arrested by An Garda Síochána in Co Louth on Saturday after a drug seizure worth an estimated €116,000.
Two search warrants were executed by gardaí attached to the Louth Divisional Drug Unit in and around Drogheda as part of two operations – Operation Stratus and Operation Tara – aimed at the cultivation, sale, supply and distribution of drugs in the region targeted.
During the first search on Saturday morning, cannabis with an estimated value of 22,600 euros and 4,280 euros in cash were seized. The second search that afternoon found 60 cannabis plants with an estimated value of 48,000 euros and 45,600 euros of methamphetamine.
A man in his 30s was arrested at the scene of the second search and taken to Drogheda Garda Police Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. He has since been released without charge and a file is now being drawn up for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
