Gardai have recovered cocaine valued at  €9,000, following a surveillance operation in Kildare Town.

Two Gardai from a specialist unit targeting the sale and supply of drugs at street level encountered two people near Chapel View yesterday evening at 8pm.

The pair challenged the Gardai, and fled on foot.

Gardai gave chase and recovered a backpack disguarded by one of the two.

It contained the drugs.

This person, a man in his twenties, was subsequently arrested and questioned.

He was released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
