Gardaí seized a large quantity of drugs with an estimated street value of €865,000 in Navan, Co Meath on Friday.

The drugs were discovered following a planned search of a house in the town on Tailteann Drive. A significant amount of cannabis, ecstasy tablets, cocaine, diamorphine and other paraphernalia was found. The final value of the seizure is subject to analysis.

A man in his early 50s and a woman in her late 30s were arrested at the scene and taken to Kells Garda station.

The man will appear in court on Sunday while the woman was released without charge.

Gardaí have said it was a ‘significant seizure disrupting the sale and supply of drugs in Meath’.
