The two men arrested in connection with a drugs seizure worth over €120,000 and gun ammunition in Coolock in north Dublin have been released without charge. 

Heroin worth an estimated €112,000 and four unspent shotgun cartridges were discovered when Gardaí stopped and searched a van on Malahide Road last Friday evening.

More of the drug, as well as cocaine and diazepam, were found during a follow-up search at a house in Darndale, Co Dublin.

It is estimated that the second seizure is worth €8,500, pending analysis. 

All of the drugs seized will be forwarded to Forensic Science Ireland for examination.

The two men in their 20s were arrested and were questioned at Coolock Garda Station.

Both were detained under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939. 

Files are now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and the investigation is ongoing.
