GARDAÍ have arrested and charged a man in relation to the seizure of €40,000 of suspected cannabis herb in Raheen, Limerick on May 19, 2020.

At around 5pm Gardaí from the Limerick Divisional Drugs Unit executed a search warrant at a house on Maigue Avenue. As Gardaí entered the house a man ran out the backdoor but was quickly apprehended.

The man, aged in his late teens, was found to be in possession of €40,000 of suspected cannabis herb which will now be sent for analysis.

The man was arrested at the scene and brought to Henry Street Garda Station where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice, 1984.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before Limerick City District Court on May 25 at 10.30am.
