Members of Tipperary Town Drugs Unit, assisted by Anglesea St. Drug Unit, carried out a search of a property under warrant in the Aherlow area last Saturday.

During the course of the operation they discovered cannabis plants worth €68,000.

A man in his 20s was detained and brought before a sitting of Tipperary District Court.

A file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
