Gardaí have seized suspected cannabis plants in Carrick on Suir.
Shortly before 7 o’clock last evening detectives and uniformed Gardaí from Carrick on Suir, assisted by the Clonmel District Drugs Unit, executed a search warrant at an address on the Ballyrichard Road in the town.
During the course of the search Gardaí found a polytunnel at the rear of the property which contained €8,000 worth of suspected cannabis plants.
The plants were seized by Gardaí along with a number of extractor fans. The plants will now be sent for analysis.
A hydraulic press and other paraphernalia associated with drug supply was also located on the property and seized.
No arrests have been made but investigating Gardaí are following a definite line of inquiry.
