GARDAÍ arrested three men in their 20s in Innishannon yesterday evening, and seized approximately €20,000 worth of suspected cannabis herb.

The driver of the car was also arrested for drug-driving at the scene.

Shortly before 4pm, gardaí from the Bandon area were carrying out a checkpoint at Skeugh Cross when they stopped and searched a car.

During the search gardaí seized suspected cannabis herb and drug paraphernalia. They later estimated the haul at €20,000 worth.

The suspected drugs will now be sent for analysis. All three men were detained at Bandon Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 and have since been released.
