A man in his 60s has been charged after gardaí seized a gun and other weapons during a search operation in Dublin on Sunday.

Shortly after midnight, gardaí stopped and searched a car on Westmoreland Street in Dublin city centre, where ammunition, an extendable baton, and a balaclava were discovered inside.

A follow-up search was carried out at a house in Dublin 11, which resulted in the seizure of a firearm, an extendable baton, a baseball bat, and other items.

A man in his 60s was arrested in relation to this seizure and was detained under the provisions of Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 at Pearse Street Garda station.

He has since been charged in relation to this incident and is due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice on the 23rd December 2021.
