Two men in their 20s are due in court today after major drugs seizures worth over €2 million across the Dublin region.

It followed a series of raids on Wednesday and Thursday, targeting drug trafficking networks operating at an international level.

Five other men remain in custody after bottles of wine and champagne suspected to contain cocaine in liquid form were found during the search of a home in Beaumont.

Cannabis, cocaine and heroin were seized when a car was stopped on the M50 and a premises was searched in Palmerstown and in the city centre.

A substantial quantity of cash, the extent of which is to be established, believed to be the proceeds of drug trafficking, was also located and seized.

Other items, including equipment used for the purpose of money counting and vacuum packing money and drugs along with communications devices and a substantial quantity of relevant documentation, were also located and seized.

Two of the seven men arrested have since been charged in connection with the operation and will appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice later this morning, one in connection with the Beaumont drugs seizure and the second man in connection with the drugs seizure on the M50.

Irish Sun Crime Editor, Stephen Breen, says some of the suspects jumped into the River Liffey as they tried to flee Gardaí;

"During the course of the operation in Palmerstown one individual jumped into the Liffey and managed to escape, Gardaí are still hunting that individual. But over the course of the two days seven people in total were arrested, it was a Brazilian national, a UK national and five people from Ireland."
