Stolen cars, firearm and drugs seized by Gardai following major operation

Stolen cars, a firearm and a large quantity of drugs were seized by Gardai yesterday following a major operation.

Two men, aged 29 and 39 years old, were arrested at the scene.

Gardai discovered the items after they searched an industrial unit in the Cookstown Industrial Estate yesterday morning.

The search was carried out by a number of units including the detective unit in Tallaght, DMR South Task Force, Sundrive Road Drug Unit and the Garda Stolen Motor Vehicle Investigation Unit. It was supported by uniformed officers from Tallaght.

Cannabis herb and cocaine with an estimated street value of up to €28,000 were seized as part of the operation.

The two arrested men were both released without charge late last night and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The investigation is ongoing.
