Ardee gardai seize over €12,000 in drugs

Ardee gardai on patrol in the town over the weekend have seized up to €12,000 worth of cannabis and cocaine.

They were on patrol in the Shanlis area at 12.05am on Saturday morning when they noticed a man in the vicinity acting suspiciously.

In a follow up search they came across the drugs.

No arrests have been made as yet.

Gardai say that the discovery is part of their ongoing investigations in relation to threats and intimidation in the Ardee area in respect of drugs.

A pipe bomb attack in recent months is also believed to be linked with the sale and supply of drugs in the locality.
