Gardaí have arrested two men after seizing a hand gun and cocaine in Dublin on Saturday.

A loaded semi-automatic pistol was located along with a small amount of cocaine following a search of a residence in Dublin 10 carried out by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau with support from the Special Crime Task Force.


Two men, both in their 30s, were arrested in connection with the seizure. They are currently detained at Lucan Garda Station.
