Two arrested as stun gun, silencer and ammo found

TWO men were arrested by gardai who discovered a stun gun, a silencer and ammunition in two house raids.

Detectives at Kevin Street uncovered the gun during a search of a property at McCarthy's Terrace in Rialto, which also led to the seizure of €5,000 worth of cannabis herb and cultivation equipment.

The operation took place at 5pm last Tuesday, and led to the arrest of a man in his late 20s.

The operation was carried out by officers battling drug crime in the south inner city.

In a follow-up search of a property at New Street on Wednesday, a number of rounds of ammunition were recovered.

A man in his early 50s was arrested.

Both men are being detained by officers at Kevin Street Garda Station.
