Four people have been arrested and more than €350,000 worth of drugs have been seized in two separate Garda operations in the east.

Two men, aged 58 and 20, were arrested at Ryebrook Business Park in Leixlip - after Gardaí found large quantities of cannabis, cocaine and heroin - along with a shotgun and ammunition.

Both men are being held at Leixlip Garda Station.

Meanwhile in Dublin, a 41-year-old man and 37-year-old woman are in custody after searches at a house in Tallaght this morning.

The operation at Donomore Avenue led to the discovery of €111,000 worth of cannabis resin.

Both suspects are being questioned at Rathfarnham Garda Station.
