The driver tested positive for cocaine and cannabis. An arrest was made and the driver was charged to appear in court.

A further arrest was made when gardaí were operating a joint checkpoint with the Taxi Regulator in the Clonmany area on Saturday night. A driver who tested positive for cocaine and cannabis was arrested and charged.
