Items seized in Donegal Town as part of the search warrant

Ballyshannon District Drugs Unit assisted by uniformed members at Donegal Town Garda Station executed a search warrant issued under the Misuse of Drugs Act, last night in the Donegal Town area.

Cannabis with an estimated street value of €1300 and over €4,000 in cash was seized.

Gardai say that investigations are ongoing.

This seizure forms part of #OperationTara, an enhanced national anti-drugs strategy, which was launched by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris on July 2, 2021.

The focus of Operation Tara is to disrupt, dismantle and prosecute drug trafficking networks, at all levels - international, national, local - involved in the importation, distribution, cultivation, production, local sale and supply of controlled drugs.

Gardai urge the public to report any information they have regarding drug dealing within their communities in Donegal.
