The drugs were seized during a planned search of a residential property in Donabate by gardaí from the Divisional Drugs unit based at Coolock station.

The man in his 50s was arrested and detained for questioning under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Swords Garda station.

He has since been released pending further enquiries, and gardaí said investigations are ongoing in a statement.
