Cash and drugs seized in Roscommon town

Gardaí seized cash and a quantity of drugs, believed to be cocaine, in Roscommon town in recent days following an ongoing intelligence-led operation.

The seizure came following the search of a house in the town on foot of a search warrant.

The search, which was carried out by members of the Roscommon/Longford Divisional Drugs Unit, assisted by local uniformed personnel, uncovered approximately €14,000 worth of suspected cocaine, together with a ‘significant’ amount of cash.

A man in his 50s was arrested and brought to Roscommon Garda Station for questioning. He has since been released and a file is being sent to the DPP.
