Cocaine with an estimated street value of €7000 was seized following the search of a house in Ballina last Wednesday.
A private dwelling in the Dillon Terrace area of the town was searched under warrant by local Gardaí on December 23, where the cocaine was seized along with drug paraphernalia. The search was conducted under the ongoing Operation Thor against the sale and supply of drugs in the area.
One male was arrested and detained under an offence under the Misuse of Drugs Act related to the sale and supply of drugs. The man was subsequently released and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The Gardaí are reminding the public that if they have any information in relation to drug dealing to contact the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or their local Garda Station.
