GARDAÍ HAVE SEIZED a suspected gun and €2,000 worth of suspected heroin after a search operation in Dublin 11 yesterday. 

The drugs and gun will now be sent for analysis.

Two men were arrested and taken to Finglas Garda Station. One of the men, aged in his teens, was charged and is due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.

The other man, aged in his 30s, was released without charge. A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
