A man in his 30’s was arrested at the scene and is currently detained under Clonmel Garda Station.

At around 11 last night a search was also carried out at an address at Kickham Place, Mullinahone by the same Gardaí.

Suspected cannabis herb, amphetamines and cash to the value of €3,500 were seized along with a weighing scales and mobile phones.
