Gardai have arrested three men after discovering a 30 kilo haul of cocaine and heroin

Three men have been arrested after a 30 kilo haul of cocaine and heroin was found in an apartment complex.

The men, aged 31, 34 and 36, were held after a raid on the block in Navan, Co Meath last night.

Twenty-two kilos of cocaine were found in the underground car park of the flats before follow-up searches found another seven kilos of the drug and one kilo of heroin in an apartment.

The haul has an estimated street value of two million euro and 50,000 euro cash was also found.

The intelligence-led raids were carried out by the drugs squad, customs and local officers from Kildare and Meath.

The three suspects were being held under drug trafficking laws at Kells and Finglas Garda stations.

Customs officials said the raid was launched after the 22-kilo shipment of cocaine was detected coming through Dublin Airport.
