A MAN and a woman were due in court this afternoon in Bantry in connection with a suspected cannabis seizure.

They were brought before the court after a European Arrest Warrant was executed in Lisbon, Portugal yesterday.

The man is in his 30s and the woman is in her 20s.

The EAW was executed in connection with the seizure of approximately €187,000 worth of suspected Cannabis herb and Cannabis plants in Dunmanway on January 18, 2016.

A garda spokesman said: "In 2016, Gardaí from the Divisional Drugs Unit in West Cork carried out a search at a house in Dunmanway, Co Cork and discovered a grow house containing €187,000 worth of cannabis herb and cannabis plants. Four men and a woman were arrested and detained at Bandon and Bantry Garda stations and later released without charged for the preparation of a file for the DPP."

The two due in court today were among those arrested.

One other man has already appeared in court in relation to it, while an EAW is still outstanding for another man. The fifth person has had no prosecution brought against him.
