A second man has been brought before a court in Kerry, charged with a major cannabis growing operation uncovered in a Tralee industrial estate earlier this week.
The seizure had an estimated street value of over €1.4m and is one of the biggest ever found in the region.
28-year-old Tran Hoa, originally from Vietnam and with an address at Khp Industrial Complex, Clash Industrial Estate, Tralee, was before the district court in Dingle.
He had the assistance of an interpreter throughout.
He arrived into the courthouse on crutches, his right leg in a heavy cast.
The court was told he had fallen off a roof and seriously injured his leg attempting to flee gardaí from the divisional drugs unit when they entered the cannabis growing operation, last Monday morning.
Detective Joe Ryan of said he had been charged with three offences under the Misuse of Drugs Acts: cannabis possession, cannabis possession for sale or supply and cultivation of cannabis.
The accused made no reply to the charges.
Replying to Supt Jim O'Connor, who said the State was objecting to bail, the garda said he believed Tran Hoa was in Ireland since April, had no fixed abode, had no documents, no ties to the country and was not claiming social welfare.
Judge James O'Connor remanded Tran Hoa in custody to appear in court in Tralee next Wednesday.
Solicitor Padraig O'Conell said his client's injuries were extremely serious and his leg was "in a cage" - he would require medical attention while in custody and had a medical appointment at Kerry General Hospital on the morning of his next appearance.
Another 28-year-old Vietnamese man has already been remanded in custody after he was brought before Tralee District Court on Wednesday on the same charges.
Cao Son Nguyen is also to appear in Tralee on Wednesday.
