The Gardai in Nenagh made a discovery of €70 worth of cocaine after they searched a male at Silver Street in the town on Friday night.

In a separate drugs find, cannabis worth €50 was seized at a Garda checkpoint at Coolaholiga last Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, following two burgalries in Roscrea in the past week, the Gardai are warning homeowners to be extra vigilent - especially with heating oil - as the evenings get darker.

One burglary occurred at Parkmore, where there was no report of anything being taken. The other happened at Short Corville, where a substantial quantity of jewellery was stolen. Three males wearing dark clothing were seen leaving the area.

Gardaí are advising people to take prevention steps such as leaving lights on when away at night and not hiding keys near doors and windows. They are also encouring people to report any suspicious vehicles immediately and to try to record the vehicle's registration number if possible.

Also in Roscrea, Gardaí arrested a man in possession of a knife at Gantly Road last Thursday evening.

In Nenagh, Gardaí are investigating an incident in which a car was damaged in the railway station car park. It is understood that several windows and both of the car's wing mirrors were damaged at around 1.30am last Sunday.

Three incidents of theft were reported at Nenagh's Tesco supermarket last Friday.

A youth was arrested under the Public Order Act at Corbally, Portroe, last Monday week. The young male was reportedly “extremely drunk” at the time.

And a female was arrested on suspicion of drink driving at Ballinahinch at around 6am last Sunday.
