DUBLIN, Ireland - A joint intelligence-led operation has resulted in the seizure of a massive 22kg of heroin worth an estimated €3 million.

The operation was carried out on Wednesday in the Dublin 15 area by Revenue's Customs Service and An Garda Sochna, through the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB).
