Two men arrested after Letterkenny drugs find freed pending files to the DPP

Two men arrested after drugs were seized by gardai on the outskirts of Letterkenny last evening have been released pending files to the DPP.

Gardai say a quantity of cannabis with an estimated street value of €2,200 was found in the car when it was stopped close to the Dry Arch Roundabout at around 5.30pm.

The two men, both in their late 30s, were and brought to Letterkenny Garda station. They were later released pending files.

Earlier this week, three non-nationals were detained following the discovery of a cannabis factory in Buncrana on Sunday night. One person was released pending a file to the DPP, while another was transferred to Cloverhill in Dublin pending his deportation.

The third has been charged with possesion of drugs with intent to supply, and remanded in custody.

Gardai say the yesterday evening's Letterkenny operation is not linked to the Buncrana find.
