Woman arrested after Gardaí discover €30,000 worth of Cannabis concealed in crisp packets

A "joint operation" in every sense of the phrase...

A woman in her 30s has been arrested after Gardaí discovered cannabis to the value of €30,000 contained in crisp packets in Dublin this week.

The discovery came after, perhaps fittingly under the circumstances, a “joint operation” involving the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB), the Revenue Customs Service and the drugs unit in the Dublin Metropolitan North region.

A picture posted on Twitter showed the cannabis seized in the Artane area of Dublin, alongside packets of nacho cheese, flamin’ hot nachos and cheddar puffs.

In a statement, Gardaí said the woman was arrested at the scene and detained at Raheny Garda Station under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act, 1996.

She was released without charge and a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
