SEVEN PEOPLE ARRESTED by gardaí following the seizure of €35k worth of cocaine in Wexford have all been released without charge.

At around 2am yesterday morning, Gardaí intercepted a van and conducted a search of the vehicle. Suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of €17,500 was seized. A short distance away, a second package containing approximately €17,500 worth of cocaine was seized after officers chased a second vehicle.
