TWO people have been arrested after Gardai made a significant drugs seizure in Limerick, worth an estimated €100,000.

As part of an ongoing operation by Gardai attached to the District Drug Unit in Roxboro Road, a car was stopped at Davin Gardens, Caherdavin on Thursday and searched.

During the course of the search Gardai discovered cannabis herb - subject to analysis - with an approximate street value of €100,000.

Two people - a man aged 54 years and a woman, aged 40 - were arrested and are being detained under the provisions of section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act 1996 at Mayorstone and Roxboro Garda stations.

“These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks,” said a garda spokesperson.

“Drug seizures play a critical role in targeting the livelihood of criminals and reducing their ability to carry out illegal activities. Drug seizures also help protect communities from the devastating impact of drugs and the associated criminality.”
