The Tipperary Divisional Drugs Unit carried out several searches over recent days in the Premier County and made a series of cannabis seizures in Borrisokane and Nenagh.

On the same day, a male was stopped at Main Street, Borrisokane, and found to be in possession of €70 worth of cocaine.

On Sunday, the unit stopped and searched a male on Silver Street, Nenagh. Amphetamine and cannabis with a combined value of €30 were found.

There were three drink driving arrests in the district in recent days.

These included a male arrested at Banba Square at 4.25pm last Saturday after gardaí received a report about the manner of his driving.

Another man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving following a single-vehicle road traffic accident at Gortlandroe around 1.45am on Sunday.

An alleged incident of criminal damage to a jeep at Curreeny, Kilcommon, is also under investigation.
