A woman in her thirties has this afternoon been charged in connection with the discovery of a major drugs haul in Longford town.

The woman, who the Leader understands is known to gardaí and from the Longford town area, was arrested earlier this morning along with a man in his early thirties after suspected cocaine, cannabis and cash totalling over €18,000 was discovered following searches at four properties in the county town.
