Two Poles detained in Irish drug bust

Two Polish men suspected of drug trafficking have been detained in Ireland thanks to Polish police intelligence.

Irish officers detained the men after receiving information from their Polish counterparts that the suspects may be involved in criminal activity in Ireland.

In an operation overseen by the Europol European Police Office, police seized 78 kilograms of marijuana of a black-market value of EUR 1.6 million (PLN 6.7 million) as well as cash worth EUR 21,000.

Iwona Jurkiewicz of the Polish Central Bureau of Police Investigation identified the suspects as 38-year-old Mariusz S. and 39-year-old Tomasz W.

The drugs were found in a house leased by the pair in Carlow, southeastern Ireland.

They face up to 10 years in jail.

One of the men was also wanted under an arrest warrant issued in Poland in a separate case.
