Gardaí have arrested two people and seized over €53,000 of suspected drugs in Cork city.
As part of an ongoing operation targeting suspected drug dealing, gardaí from the Mayfield Drugs Unit carried out a patrol on the north side of Cork city last night.
At around 7pm, gardaí saw the occupants of a car involved in what they say was believed to a drugs transaction in the Boherboy Road area of Mayfield.
Gardaí stopped the car and carried out a search of the vehicle and the occupants under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
Gardaí found €1,000 of cannabis herb split into deals and a further €2,100 of cannabis herb was located in the boot of the car.
The occupants of the car, a man and a woman in their 30s, were both arrested and brought to Mayfield Garda Station.
They are currently being detained under section 2 of Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.
As part of the investigation, gardaí later carried out a search at a house in Ballincollig.
During the search, gardaí seized €50,000 of cannabis herb and €250 of cocaine.
Gardaí also seized a vacuum packer, plastic bags and a sum of cash.
All of the suspected drugs will now be sent to Forensic Science Ireland for analysis.
