Gardai have uncovered €5,000 worth of cocaine in a car in St Johnston.
The drugs were found when Gardai from the Buncrana Roads Policing Unit carried out a routine traffic stop yesterday afternoon.
The driver initially tested positive for driving under the influence of drugs.
Gardai then searched the car and found what they believe is a package containing €5,000-€6,000 of cocaine.
The driver was arrested and charged and is to appear at a future sitting of the courts.
The find comes after a spike in the number of drivers using drugs while behind the wheel.Tags:
