Two men were due in court this morning in connection with a heroin find in Dublin earlier this week.

Drugs worth €1.2m were found on Tuesday night when gardaí stopped and searched a jeep at a roundabout at the junction of River Road and Navan Road.

And officers from Revenue's Customs Service seized 16.5kg of herbal cannabis at Dublin Airport yesterday.

The drugs, with a street value of €35,000, were discovered when officers examined the baggage of a 34-year-old South African woman.

She had arrived on a flight from Paris having previously travelled from Johannesburg.

The drugs were vacuum-packed and concealed in a suitcase.

The woman was arrested and handed over to the Santry Garda Drug Squad. She was due to appear in court this morning.
