A MAN IN his 30s has been arrested by gardaí in Limerick following the seizure of over €13,000 worth of suspected drugs, money and counterfeit money.

As part of an ongoing operation targeting the sale and supply of drugs in the west Limerick and north Kerry areas, gardaí from the Newcastle West District Drugs Unit executed a search warrant at a house on Main Street in Shanagolden in Co Limerick at around 3pm yesterday.

During the course of the search, gardaí seized €4,900 worth of suspected cocaine, €7,000 in cash and €520 of suspected counterfeit cash.

A car and a fake driving licence were also seized during the search.

A man, aged in his 30s, was arrested at the scene and brought to Newcastle West Garda Station. He has since been released and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

A follow-up search was later conducted at a house in the Abbeyfeale area which resulted in the seizure of a car and €700 worth of suspected cocaine.
