Income officers grabbed a huge amount of methamphetamine during a raid on a house in the city of Cork on Tuesday morning.
As part of a joint operation between Customs Department of Revenue, Gardaí of the Drugs Division in Anglesea Street and the Office for Drugs Crime and Organized Crime, the residency was sought.
During the search, they found 100 g of suspected brain-numbing methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of € 6,000.
A 48-year-old Irishman was arrested and detained at the Bridewell Street Garda station, according to the provisions of article 4 of the Criminal Justice 1984.
He was later indicted and would appear in the court of Cork on Thursday morning.
A Revenue spokesperson said: "This operation was part of ongoing joint investigations focused on drug imports.
"If companies or citizens have information about drug trafficking, they can contact Revenue in confidence on the confidential telephone number 1800 295 295."
