A woman in her 50s who was arrested in connection with a drugs seizure in Kildare has been released without charge.

Yesterday, An Garda Síochana (AGS) said that €82,000 of suspected MDMA, also known as 'ecstasy', had been discovered following a search at a home in Athy, and that a woman in her 50s had been arrested.

The seizure was made as a result of a joint operation conducted by Revenue’s Customs Service, the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau, Kildare District Drugs Unit and Kildare District Detective Unit.
