Gardaí have seized cannabis herb worth an estimated €21,000 in Co Clare.

The drugs were found during the search of a house in the Miltown Malbay area earlier today.

A 22-year-old man was arrested at the scene and he was taken to Ennis Garda Station for questioning.

He has since been released and a file is to be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

1.5kgs of cocaine with an estimated street value of €105,000 and 1kg of cannabis herb worth an estimated €20,000 were discovered during a search of a house and lands at Kilmurray, Sixmilebridge.

The sub-machine gun and ammunition was found during the same search.
