Three men have been arrested after a semi-automatic pistol was found in Dublin.
At around 9:30pm last night a vehicle was stopped on the Oscar Traynor Road, Dublin 5.
Following a search of the vehicle, a semi-automatic pistol and ammunition were seized.
The men inside the car, aged 53, 24 and 23 were then arrested.
They're currently being detained at Ballymun and Coolock Garda Stations with investigations ongoing.
Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll, Special Crime Operations (SCO), said:
"Recent arrest of suspects and the seizure of a firearm yesterday, by the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB), following the seizure of a large quantity of drugs on Tuesday and a significant quantity of cash a number of days earlier, reflects the Garda Síochána’s unrelenting efforts to effectively tackle organised crime."
