Gardaí from the Southside Community Engagement team and Anglesea Street carried out patrols and surveillance in the area yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation targeting anti-social behaviour.
At 8.30 yesterday evening Gardaí noticed a man, aged in his early 20, acting suspiciously and was kept under surveillance.
He was stopped and searched on Rossa Avenue as he was found to be in possession of nearly €800 of suspected cocaine.
The man was arrested and brought to Bishopstown Garda Station and has since been released.
A follow-up search was carried out in the area later that evening and Gardaí seized a further €700 of suspected cocaine and €600 of suspected cannabis herb.
