Gardaí have arrested two men, one from county Louth and another from Dublin, and seized €72,000 worth of drugs at a house in County Meath today.

During the search of a house in Slane, gardaí from the Louth Divisional Drug Unit seized €72,300 worth of suspected cocaine.

Two men, one aged in his early 20s and the other in his early 30s, were arrested following the seizure.

They are currently being detained at Drogheda Garda Station.
