Gardaí in Limerick have seized money, ammunition and suspected drugs after seeing a car parking in a disabled spot.
A man in his 20s has also been arrested.
Gardaí were on Operation Disruption patrol when they saw a car parking in a disabled bay on Cecil Street.
They said they spoke to the driver, a man in his 20s, who handed over a container with €80 of suspected cannabis herb.
Gardaí said that the driver then fled on foot running down Catherine Street and was chased by gardaí, who also saw him discard another package.
They said: “He was arrested a short distance away and brought to Roxboro Road Garda Station.
“A search of the car was then carried out and Gardaí seized €300 cash and a mobile phone.
“The discharged package was also recovered and also contained €320 suspected cannabis herb.” Gardaí said that a follow-up search was later carried out at a house in Thomandgate where they seized almost 100 rifle cartridges, €250 fireworks, approximately €3,800 cash, and €200 of suspected cannabis herb.
Gardaí said the man has since been released and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The suspected drugs and ammunition will all be sent for analysis.
