Two men charged following Laghey drug seizure

Two men have been remanded in custody as gardai continue investigations into a €1.6 million haul of cannabis plants.

Ming Sun, 44, and Xia Hua He, 34, both Chinese nationals, were charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and cultivation of cannabis in a warehouse at Trummon, Laghey, Co. Donegal, last Friday.

Judge Kevin Kilrane remanded them in custody at a special sitting of Sligo District Court last night(Saturday) to Harristown District Court next Friday.

No application for bail was made.

Meanwhile, gardai continuing their investigation into the discovery of 2,000 cannabis plants, have said they were appalled at the primitive living conditions of two suspects.

A senior Garda source said the men lived in squalid quarters inside a warehouse where the plants and growing materials were seized on Friday afternoon.
