Two men were arrested in Kilkenny City on Saturday afternoon and questioned in connection with a cannabis seizure, with an estimated street value of €5,000.
Detectives stopped a vehicle, which was acting suspiciously and seized the drugs. The two men were arrested and brought to Kilkenny Garda Station where they were questioned in relation to the sale and supply of the drugs which gardaí believe were destined for the local market.
They were subsequently released without charge and the drugs have been sent for analysis.
"Persons of interest were arrested, we will continue to investigate this offence and other similar type offences," a senior garda spokesman said.
