Four Irish men remain in custody in southern Spain after a joint operation by Gardaí and Spanish police uncovered drugs worth €3.4 million.
Gardaí say the cannabis herb was found hidden in lettuce pallets on a lorry that was bound for Ireland.
The operation happened on May 6th near Malaga, but details of the operation were only released last night.
The Irish men – aged 56, 45, 35 and 33 – have already appeared before a Spanish magistrate.
A 27-year-old Romanian man was also arrested.
Gardaí are describing the operation as a significant blow to organised crime gangs.
