Two questioned over drugs and gun seizure

Two men were arrested by Galway gardaí, and one is still being questioned, after drugs and a gun were seized in a raid in east Galway yesterday.

During a search in Loughrea, officers with the Divisional Drugs Unit found cocaine and cannabis with an estimated street value of €320,000.

The search was carried out with the assistance of local gardaí in Loughrea as part of an operation targeting organised crime in the area.
