Three men charged after €1m drug haul
THREE Dublin men have been charged with drugs offences following the seizure of an estimated €1m worth of cannabis in the north inner city.
The accused were arrested following an operation involving between the Garda Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau and Revenue's customs service on Wednesday.
Gavin Mulvey (34), Jonathan Carberry (34) and Elliott Kidd (24) all appeared before Dublin District Court.
Mr Mulvey, of Kiltalown Road, and Mr Carberry, of Marfield Green, both Tallaght, were remanded on bail, while Mr Kidd, of Mabel Street, Dublin 3, was remanded in custody with consent to bail.
They are all charged with possession of cannabis with intent to sell or supply at Bath Lane, Dublin 1, on June 11. Gardai made no objections to bail.
Det Gda Rebecca Daly told Judge Anthony Halpin that Mr Mulvey replied "no comment" when he was charged at Store Street Station.
Mt Mulvey, a father-of-three, was granted bail in his own bond of €500 with an independent surety of €5,000.
Det Gda Darragh Daly said Mr Carberry made no reply when he was charged.
Solicitor Niall O'Connor applied for bail for Mr Carberry and Judge Halpin granted it in the accused's bond of €500 with a €3,000 surety. Both men are to sign on twice weekly at Tallaght Garda Station.
Det Gda William Armstrong said Mr Kidd made no reply when charged at Mountjoy Station. Mr Kidd's family was of very poor means, his solicitor John Feaheny said. Judge Halpin set a €2,000 cash bail surety. Mr Kidd must sign on daily at Fitzgibbon Street Garda Station and observe a curfew.
Their cases were adjourned to June 19 for the directions of the DPP. None of the men indicated how they intend to plead.
