Gardai in Killybegs arrested and detained two people in Donegal Town last night and seized a substantial quantity of drugs.

They have been released without charge pending a file being sent to the DPP.

Gardai are satisfied that the drugs were destined for the Killybegs area.

The drugs seized were cocaine and cannabis.

Gardai say “The seizure is a result of extensive surveillance and intelligence”.
