Gardaí Seize Heroin Worth €90,000 In Tipperary

Investigations are ongoing, following the seizure by Gardaí of the recreational drug (Diamorphine C21H23NO5), with an estimated street value of some €90,000.  One man was arrested during this planned operation, which continues to successfully target the sale and supply of drugs here in Co. Tipperary and Co. Kilkenny.

The drugs were discovered by Gardaí when they intercepted and halted a car exiting the M9 motorway at the Knocktopher village exit at 11.00pm last night.  The vehicle seized was then brought to Carrick-on-Suir Garda Station for a thorough search, at which time the heroin was located.

The arrested man, aged in his 40’s, was also the driver of the intercepted vehicle and is currently being detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Drug Trafficking Act, 1996 at Thomastown Garda Station, Co Kilkenny. He can be detained in custody for up to seven days.

The seizure was conducted by Gardaí from the Tipperary Divisional Drugs Unit, assisted by detectives from Co. Kilkenny and members of the Armed Support Unit.
