The sawn off shotgun seized during a raid in Limerick

GARDAÍ have seized a sawn-off shotgun and ammunition during a raid on a house in Limerick. 

The discovery was made as part of an intelligence led operation, in which Gardaí carried out a search of a house close to Limerick city centre. 

The raid took place at approximately 5:30pm on Wednesday May 23. 

During the search, a sawn-off shot gun and a small amount of ammunition was recovered. 

A woman in her 30s was arrested and detained at Henry Street Garda Station under Section 30 Offences Against the State Act 1939.

She has since been released without charge and a file will be prepared for the DPP.
