€90,000 Worth Of Drugs & Cash Seized In Tipperary

Cannabis Sativa

A man in his 30’s has been arrested following a series of drug searches in South Co. Tipperary, which has resulted in the seizure of €90,000 worth of drugs, cash and other associated paraphernalia.

The searches were carried out in the Kilfeacle area of the county near Tipperary Town; on three separate properties, at around noon on Wednesday last, April 29th. Same raids were undertaken by Gardaí from the Tipperary Divisional Drug Unit, ably assisted by colleagues from Tipperary Town Garda Station.

The drug, cash and paraphernalia seized and identified during the course of the three searches, were cannabis with an estimated value of €74,000; €16,600 in cash; a set of weighing scales and a number of small bags.

The 30-year-old man was arrested on sight at one of the three properties, before being taken into custody and detained at Cahir Garda Station.

Also, on April 29th last, Cahir Gardai, on a routine patrol in a local housing estate, arrested a motorist after he tested positive for cocaine.
We understand the driver had narrowly avoided colliding with the arresting officer in charge of the Garda patrol car.
