GARDAÍ HAVE SEIZED almost €180,000 worth of suspected cannabis herb and cocaine in Drogheda, Co Louth.

As part of Operation Stratus, an intelligence-led operation targeting the sale and supply of illegal drugs in Drogheda,  gardaí from the divisional drugs unit and members of the Drogheda detective unit intercepted a vehicle on the outskirts of the town shortly after 9pm last night.

Gardaí say they are following a “definite line of enquiry” but no arrests have been made so far.
