A WOMAN has been arrested after gardai seized a shotgun during a raid targeting organised crime in Limerick.

Yesterday evening, local gardai carried out the search of a house in Limerick city centre following an intelligence led operation.

The property was raided by detectives shortly before 5.30pm as part of an ongoing investigation.

During the search, a sawn-off shotgun and a small amount of ammunition were recovered.

A woman in her 30s was arrested and brought to Henry Street garda station.

She was quizzed for a number of hours under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act before being released without charge.

A file will now be prepared for the DPP and investigations are ongoing in relation to the firearms seizure.
