Gardaí have seized a semi-automatic firearm, ammunition, €300,000 worth of cocaine and arrested a man following searches at a number of locations in west Dublin.

The searches took place over the weekend and formed part of an ongoing investigation targeting serious organised criminal activity by the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB).

The Bureau was assisted by additional personnel assigned to a local drug unit at Blanchardstown Garda Station.
