Drugs worth €3,000 are seized af­ter chase

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

DRUGS with an es­ti­mated street value of around €3,000 were seized from a ve­hi­cle in Bun­clody on Satur­day morn­ing af­ter a high speed chase which cul­mi­nated in the flee­ing car col­lid­ing with a van near the Ap­ple­green Sta­tion at Ry­land Street.

The in­ci­dent took place at around 9 a.m. on Satur­day morn­ing. Gar­daí no­ticed a car be­ing driven dan­ger­ously and ac­ti­vated the blue lights to pull the driver over. The driver, a lo­cal man aged in his 20s, re­fused to stop the ve­hi­cle, how­ever, and set off driv­ing at speed. Gar­daí gave chase and the in­ci­dent came to a con­clu­sion on Ry­land Street af­ter the man took the bend too fast and hit a van, bring­ing him to an in­stant stop at which point he was ar­rested.

A garda spokesman said that no­body was in­jured as a re­sult of the col­li­sion and the dam­age to the ve­hi­cles was min­i­mal.

Upon ar­rest­ing the man, gar­daí car­ried out a search of the ve­hi­cle and dis­cov­ered a pack­age con­tain­ing ‘a con­trolled sub­stance’ to the value of €3,000. The man was con­veyed to En­nis­cor­thy Garda Sta­tion and charges are ex­pected to be forth­com­ing.
