DETECTIVES have smashed a major drugs gang after a 24-hour operation.
Three people were being questioned last night after the cannabis seizures in Donegal and Sligo.
The operation began on Monday night when a man and a woman were stopped at a garda checkpoint on the N4 near Ballymote in Co Sligo.
They were arrested after cannabis estimated to be worth around €80,000 was found in their car.
Gardai then began an overnight operation to trace cannabis linked to the seizure.
And yesterday afternoon, detectives seized 1.2kgs of cannabis from a house on the outskirts of Milford, Co Donegal. Both finds are being linked to the same drugs gang.
