The white Audi was stopped last night, Tuesday, July 9, on North Baileygate after reports of suspicious behaviour.

Substances thought to be cocaine and ecstasy were found and all three men in the vehicle were arrested for possession with an intent to supply Class A drugs.

There was also cannabis found in the vehicle, for which they face a possession charge, while a "large amount of cash" was recovered from the vehicle.
