Drugs and two guns have been seized by Gardaí during an operation in north Dublin.

As part of ongoing operations targeting organised criminal activity in DMR West, officers searched a housing complex in Finglas yesterday.

Cocaine valued at approximately €210,000 was discovered. An assault rifle and a machine pistol with silencer, as well as a quantity of ammunition, were also seized.

The raid also uncovered re-rolled cannabis joints and mixing agents.

No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.

Chief Superintendent Finbarr Murphy is from the DMR West Garda Division;

"The purpose of these firearms is to intimidate, harm and kill.  I commend all of my colleagues involved in this operation on the recovery of these lethal weapons, which have now been removed from the control of criminal gangs. These searches are part of ongoing activity by the Gardaí in Finglas, supported by Regional and National Units, intended on keeping the people of Finglas and the wider community safe."
