Two people in their 20s to appear in Court for possession of drugs in Monaghan town

Two people in their twenties are to appear in court next month charged with the possession of drugs in Monaghan town.

Approximately €2,000 worth of drugs were found following a search of a car last Friday.


Gardai on patrol on the outskirts of Monaghan town observed a car acting suspiciously, and on investigation, the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of an intoxicant.

A follow-up search of the car found a quantity of cannabis and one thousand tablets understood to be a controlled drug.

Gardai estimate that the combined value of the drugs seized was in the region of €2,000.

A man and a woman in their 20s are due to appear before Monaghan District Court in September in relation to the incident.
