Gardaí have arrested a man after a car turned round at a checkpoint and drove away without stopping for officers.
Gardaí had set up a checkpoint in Clonard, Co. Wexford, early this morning at 12:10am.
A short time later, Gardaí arrested a motorist in his 20s. They searched his car and found a significant quantity of MDMA before he was taken to Wexford Garda Station.
In a follow-up search at a property in Wexford, officers found what they described as a "substantial" amount of MDMA.
They then searched another car and found more of the drug.
It is estimated that the combined value of the drugs seized is around €200,000.
Gardaí expect to make further arrests.
