The cannabis plants found growing in a polytunnel in Carrick-on-Suir

Gardaí seized €8,000 of suspected cannabis plants growing in a polytunnel in Carrick-on-Suir yesterday Monday. 

Shortly before 7pm detectives and uniformed gardaí from Carrick-on-Suir, assisted by the Clonmel Garda District Drugs Unit, executed a search warrant at an address on Ballyrichard Road, Carrick on Suir.

During the course of the search, gardaí found a polytunnel at the rear of the property which contained €8,000 of suspected cannabis plants. The plants were seized by gardaí along with a number of extractor fans. The plants will now be sent for analysis.

A hydraulic press and other paraphernalia associated with drug supply was also located on the property and seized.

No arrests have been made but investigating gardaí are following a definite line of enquiry.
