A 28-year-old man appeared in Dublin District Court earlier today, charged with the unlawful possession of ammunition.

The man, who is from North Dublin, was remanded in custody to Cloverhill Prison, to appear in court again later this month.

He was arrested at an apartment in Finglas in the early hours of yesterday morning.

600 rounds of ammunition for four types of handguns and a Glock silencer were found in the apartment in Premier Square after officers from the Garda National Drugs Unit and the organised crime unit raided three homes.
