Nine people held in drug raids

Nine people have been arrested and cash and drugs seized during a series of early-morning raids.

Three women and six men from across Co Cavan are being questioned after the operation.

The raids were carried out by gardai investigating the sale and supply of Ecstasy and other controlled drugs in the Cavan and Monaghan division.

The suspects, who are aged from their mid 20s to early 40s, are being held in various Garda stations throughout the county under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

A garda spokesman said a considerable amount of cash and controlled drugs were seized during the operation.
