Cocaine with a value of €177,800, cannabis worth €13,240 and ecstasy with a value of €5,070 were discovered and seized along with a quantity of ammunition. All seized items are subject to analysis.

A man, aged in his late teens, was arrested in relation to this investigation and was taken to Sligo Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996.
