Drama as gardai seize €4,800 of cocaine after car chase through streets of Kilkenny city
Kilkenny gardai seized €4,800 worth of cocaine after they chased a car through the city’s streets yesterday evening.
The drama unfolded after members of the Kilkenny Divisional Drugs Unit noticed the occupants of a car acting suspiciously.
When they went to approach the men they sped off, driving dangerously through several streets in the city, at one stage mounting a footpath before they were eventually stopped.
A local Garda spokesperson confirmed “a bag of white powder” – containing €4,800 of cocaine – was recovered from the vehicle.
The spokesperson added: “A male was arrested and detained at Kilkenny Garda Station under Section 4 of the CJA 1984. Male later charged to Kilkenny District Court with sale and supply of cocaine. A second male was charged with dangerous driving.”
