TWO MEN HAVE been arrested in west Dublin after gardaí seized drugs, ammunition, and replica firearms during a planned operation on Monday. 

As part of ongoing investigations targeting the activities of organised criminal groups in west Dublin, the K-District Community Action team carried out a search of a house in the Prospect Hill area of Finglas. 

During the search, gardaí recovered quantities of cocaine, cannabis and amphetamines with a combined estimated street value of €60,000. 

Three samurai swords, a replica rifle, two replica handguns and quantities of ammunition were also recovered along with €2,000 in cash. 

The firearms and ammunition were removed for further ballistic examination. 

The two men in their 20s were arrested at the scene and are currently detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996 at Finglas Garda Station.
