Two men have been arrested following the seizure of €40,000 worth of drugs as part of an intelligence-led operation.

Gardai made the discovery in the Athy area of Kildare as part of an operation targeting the sale and supply of controlled drugs.

A 47-year-old man and a 38-year-old man were arrested for possession of cannabis and heroin.

A number of knifes and drugs paraphernalia were also recovered in a search of the premises.

Gardai from Athy and Newbridge stations were assisted by the Regional Support Unit in the operation.

The two men have been detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 at Newbridge and Kildare Garda stations.
