  • A bicycle believed to be stolen,

  • A small quantity of Cocaine,

  • Numerous weapons,

A Garda spokesperson said:"A number of vehicles were tested for the use of illegal fuel and two of these were subsequently seized by Customs and Excise Officials."

"An Audi car was also seized under the provisions of Section 41, Road Traffic Act, 1994”.

Three of the four people arrested were released after interviews were conducted and are pending further investigations.
