A report in today’s Irish Independent highlights that cocaine, with a street value of approximately €35,000, has been seized from a house in New Ross.
Three men, in their 20s and 30s, were arrested after a successful intelligence-led Garda search. A pistol, along with 40 rounds of ammunition, was found in the car. A house-search followed, and €33,000 in cash was seized from a house in Waterford.
A fourth suspect was arrested at a New Ross house, where the cocaine [pending analysis] with a street value of €35,000 was seized.
