A judge has ordered the destruction of a cache of arms and live ammunition discovered in Donegal.

The haul, which included a 9mm handgun, was in possession of gardai since they seized it during investigation of a series of robberies in the Gweedore and Rosses areas of Donegal in 2011.

The list of arms and ammunition presented to Glenties District Court on Wednesday included two imitation SIG handguns, a black imitation airgun, a black and red stun gun, and a black stun gun combined with a flashlight and CS gas dispenser, a canister of CS pepper spray, and a glass jar with 51 rounds of live rounds of 9 mm Luger ammunition.

Judge Paul Kelly gave permission for the destruction of the arms to Inspector Dennis Joyce.
