GARDAI have arrested and charged four men (late teens and early 20s) following the seizure of approximately €500 of suspected cocaine, cannabis and controlled drugs (pending analysis) as part on an Operation Thor Day of Action in Caherciveen.

As part of an Operation Thor Day of Action, six searches were carried out at residential properties in the Caherciveen area on Thursday.

The operation involved members from Caherciveen Garda Station, the Divisional Drugs Unit, Divisional Roads Policing Unit, Regional Dog Unit and Armed Support Unit.

A crime prevention stand and 3 checkpoints were set up for Gardaí to give the relevant crime prevention advice on topics such as fraud, bogus traders, personal safety and home security.

Members from the Roads Policing Unit and the Regional Dog Unit also visited Scoil Saidhbhín primary school and spoke to students about road safety and the duties that Gardaí and the Dog Unit do on a daily basis.

Speaking at Caherciveen Garda Station today, Inspector Mike Fleming said “This operation was primarily focused on intelligence gathering and disrupting the sale, distribution and use of controlled drugs in South Kerry. Drugs can effect so many lives and have no place in our communities. We also had members out providing the public with crime prevention advice. This is vital as it not only also us to get to know our locals better, it allow us to inform them how to keep themselves and their homes safe from criminals”. The four men have since appeared before Caherciveen District Court.
