Four arrested after gun seizures

Gardai have arrested four people over the weekend after seizing two firearms in the city.

Around 5pm yesterday, a Garda patrol stopped a car on the Ballysimon Road where they found one of the two occupants to be carrying a pistol. Both were arrested at the scene and brought to Mayorstone Garda Station.

The holder of the pistol, a 21 year old from the St. Mary’s Park area of the city, was formally charged today with the possession of the 9mm handgun. He made no reply when charged.

In a separate event, Gardai searched a house in the Corbally area of the city where they found a rifle. Two men both in their 20’s were arrested at the location. They were released late Sunday and a file has been sent to the DPP.
