Man arrested in connection with drugs haul is released without charge

A man in his late 20s, arrested in connection with a significant haul of ecstasy tablets, has been released without charge.

The drugs, with an estimated value of more than 200-thousand euro, were recovered in two searches in the Gurranabraher area of Cork on Saturday.

A small quantity of ecstasy was found when Gardai stopped a car.

A further 20,000 ecstasy tablets were found in a follow-up search of a house in Farranree.

A file is being prepared for the DPP.
