Carrick-on-Suir Gardaí, while conducting an ‘Operation Lifesaver’ checkpoint on Monday last, May 3rd, detected a vehicle in rather a hurry.

The vehicle was halted and following a discussion with the driver, Gardai were alerted to a distinctive smell of cannabis, emanating from inside the vehicle.
On searching the car, Gardai uncovered a consignment of cannabis, with a re-saleable value, estimated at approximately €600.

The driver, a local man, was immediately arrested and detained under the ‘Misuse of Drugs Act’.
The vehicle itself was also seized for having no insurance.

A file has been sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and a court appearence is expected to follow.
