Gardaí have seized €5,850 worth of suspected drugs and €1,400 in cash in Killarney.
The items were seized during an Operation Fanacht COVID-19 checkpoint, which was being conducted on the Rock Road shortly before 10 o’clock last night.
A car approached the checkpoint and was allowed pass through, however, a surveillance operation was put in place.
The car was followed and the driver was later stopped and searched by Gardaí.
They found €1,400 in cash hidden under the passenger seat and a small weighing scales in the boot.
The items were seized and the driver, a man in his 30s, was allowed to leave.
Gardaí then obtained and executed a search warrant at a flat in Killarney where they found suspected drugs, zip lock bags and a weighing scales.
€5,760 worth of methamphetamine, €80 of cannabis and €10 of ecstasy were seized and will now be sent for analysis.
No arrests were made but Gardaí are following a definite line of enquiry.
A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
