Tipperary Garda Searches Identify Animal Cruelty, Stolen Property & Cocaine.

Today, March 16th, 2022, Gardaí in the Clonmel District assisted by the Regional Dog Unit, carried out a total of 10 searches in Clonmel and surrounding areas.

Various items which Gardaí suspect as having been stolen, such as lawnmowers, bicycles, chainsaws and power tools, were seized along with fuel syphoning equipment.

A search in the Old Bridge area of Clonmel resulted in the seizure of suspected cocaine, with an estimated street value of €7,000 (pending analysis).
A man aged in his 20’s was arrested and is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Clonmel Garda Station.

During a search in the Powerstown area of Clonmel, a caged wild rabbit was located which had been badly injured by hunting dogs.
The wild animal was removed from the scene and brought to a local Veterinary clinic, where sadly it had to be put down, such was its condition.
Further investigations are ongoing in relation to this latter incident.
