Two men have been arrested and €30,000 worth of cocaine seized after gardai pursued a car which damaged one of their vehicles in a dramatic ramming accident in Co Louth.

Gardaí were on patrol in the Ferdia Park area of ​​Ardee at around 9.30pm when they stopped a car.

Officers had spoken to two men who were sitting in the car when the driver suddenly accelerated away from the scene of the accident, crashing into the rear of his Garda official vehicle and causing extensive damage.

A controlled containment operation was then initiated involving several units.

And at some point during the operation, gardaí observed a package being thrown from the vehicle on the N52 in the Corbollis area.

When Gardai secured the package they discovered suspected cocaine worth around €30,000.

The containment operation eventually ended on the N52 in Clonkeehan “after gardaí intervened to stop the vehicle in question” with no injuries reported.

“Two men were arrested and approximately €30,000 of suspected cocaine was seized following a dangerous driving accident in County Louth on Friday evening, October 20,” Gardai said.

“Two men (in their 60s and 40s) are both currently being held at a Garda station in County Louth under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984,” Gardaí said.

The seized drugs will be taken to Forensic Science Ireland (FSI) for analysis.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues.
