On Wednesday members of the Louth divisional detective and operational uniform units, the emergency response unit backed by armed support and the dog unit, searched four properties.
Two men aged in their 20s were arrested, one vehicle was seized for examination and cannabis and cocaine worth an approximate 5,000 euro were recovered.
