Gardaí gave evidence to a court sitting that they found a suspected drugs haul at a property in Kildare town.

Those in attendance at Naas District Court on Thursday, June 23, were told that Alesandro Velardo, with an address listed as 4 Cooleven Walk, Cloverhill Road, Dublin 22, is accused of obstructing gardaí and throwing a package out of a window at his home on May 31 last.

The latter offence would constitute a contravention of Sections 21 and 27 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, 1977.
