The seizure took place due to a joint intelligence-led operation involving Revenue’s Customs Service, the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau, and Gardaí from the Drugs Unit in Naas and was part of ongoing joint investigations targeting drug importations in Kildare, according to a Revenue statement.

Investigations are continuing.
