A 40-year-old man has appeared at Naas District Court charged in connection with a 2008 drug seizure of cannabis resin.

Eddie Van Boxtel, from Sillogue Avenue, Ballymun in Dublin, was remanded in custody and will appear again before the courts on 5 March.

He was arrested in the Clondalkin area of the city earlier today.

A bench warrant had been issued after he failed to appear for a scheduled court hearing.
