Gardaí Seize €70,000 Worth Of Cocaine In Nenagh, Co. Tipp.

Nenagh Gardaí are investigating the discovery of what is understood to be a consignment of cocaine (subject to confirmation by analysis) with an estimated street value of over €70,000 in Co. Tipperary.

The consignment first came to the attention of Gardaí on Wednesday last January 17th, resulting in the drugs being seized at Nenagh Fire Station, Limerick Road in Nenagh.

A man in his 30s was arrested on Thursday and detained for questioning at Nenagh Garda Station before being released without charge.

A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and the investigation is ongoing.

Tipperary County Council have made no comment in relation to the seizure, however they confirmed they are co-operating with the Garda investigation.

Cocaine has become the second most trafficked illegal drug in the world and no longer the drug of choice for just wealthy people. Today it has the reputation of being a most dangerous and highly addictive drug, strongly linked to poverty, serious crime and death.
