A Dublin man allegedly caught with thousands of euro worth of cocaine and heroin has been sent for trial.

Philip Curran (30) is also alleged to have been in possession of €2,085 which was the proceeds of crime.

The accused, of Oliver Bond House, Dublin 8, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with possession of heroin and cocaine and having the drugs for sale or supply.

Mr Curran is further charged under Section 15A of the Misuse of Drugs Act, where the alleged value of the drugs is greater than €13,000.

Evidence

He is also charged with possession of the cash, which is the alleged proceeds of criminal conduct.

A state solicitor said the book of evidence had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge David McHugh gave Mr Curran the formal alibi caution.

The judge assigned solicitor John O'Doherty and one junior counsel on free legal aid. He also assigned a second senior counsel, given the seriousness of the charges.

Mr Curran has not yet indicated a plea.
