Two men arrested in connection with the seizure of drugs and ammunition in Dublin have been released without charge.

The men, aged in their 20s, had been detained at Coolock Garda Station since being arrested on Friday.

Heroin with an estimated value of €112,000 along with four unspent shot gun cartridges were discovered by gardaí when they stopped and searched a van on Malahide Road in Coolock.

Further amounts of drugs, including heroin, cocaine and diazepam, worth approximately €8,500 were recovered during a follow-up search of a house in the Darndale area.

Files will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The investigation is ongoing.
