Cannabis Grow House Discovered In Roscrea, Co. Tipperary

Cannabis sativa

With the latest figures from the Health Research Board showing a continuing rise in the number of people seeking help for cannabis use; we learn today, that what are suspected as being cannabis plants, worth an estimated €120,000, have been seized at a house in Co Tipperary.

The discovery was made following a fire, which began early this morning, causing extensive damage to property situated in the Rathnavogue area of Roscrea, north of the county.

When the fire was eventually extinguished, local Gardaí searching the building, discovered it had been converted into an apparent ‘grow house’ with a cultivation system, including the necessary heat lamps and fans, installed.

Meanwhile, south of the county and earlier this week Gardaí arrested four men, while seizing an estimated €1,100 worth of suspected cannabis herb, following the pursuit of a car in the Clonmel are of Co. Tipperary.

Gardaí are asking anyone with information to contact Nenagh Garda Station on Tel: 067 50450, or the Garda Confidential Line on Tel: 1800 666 111 to assist them with their ongoing investigations.
