Tipperary; Gardaí from the Clonmel District Drugs Unit have seized some €60,000 of suspected Cocaine (pending further analysis), at, as yet, an undisclosed outdoor location, between the villages of Mullinahone and Ballingarry (SR).

As part of this ungoing investigation a follow-up search was further carried out at a building in Drangan Village this afternoon. During this search Gardaí seized a weighing scales, a vacuum packing machine, bags and other identified drug paraphernalia.
