Kildare and Dublin drug finds 'could be worth €250m'27/06/2012 - 12:48:57
The street value of yesterday's massive drugs seizures in Kildare and Dublin could be as high as €250m.
It is thought the 350kgs of cocaine could be of 90% purity, meaning it would be worth many multiples of the official €28m figure.
Gardaí are now investigating who is behind the shipment, which arrived into Dublin Port in recent weeks and was under surveillance by the drugs squad and revenue.
Two men have been arrested in relation to the find.
Crime reporter Paul Williams said: "The average hit that you get on the street could be sometimes as low as 10% actual cocaine. The rest is crap and chemicals."
