He is expected to appear before a sitting of Mallow District Court tomorrow morning, February 13, at 10:30am.

Gardai searched a residential property and seized €62,800 and a high-powered car.

A second residence was searched in Cobh, and cops seized €3,500 worth of suspected cocaine, 180 rounds of ammunition, an ammunition press, incapacitant OC spray, and drug-related paraphernalia.

All items seized are undergoing forensic analysis and examination.

Investigations are ongoing.

Separately, a major probe is underway after 1,100 prescription pills were allegedly recovered from a prison officer’s home.

The Irish Sun can reveal the pills were discovered after a Garda raid and that a man in his 30s has been arrested.

A quantity of cash was also seized during the search.

The officer – based at a Dublin prison – was questioned by Gardai

The raid was undertaken by Gardai after they received information a prison officer was storing the drugs.

One theory is that he was holding the drugs for a north Dublin crime gang.
