Man held after suspect devices find

A man has been arrested and two suspect devices seized during a search operation in Co Limerick.

The planned raid was carried out in Maiden Street, Newcastle West, at around 10.10pm on Wednesday night.

Gardai evacuated the area when two suspect devices were found and notified the Army bomb disposal unit, which determined they were hoaxes.

The man is currently detained at Newcastle West Garda Station under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939.
