Gardaí discover drugs worth €100,000 found during car search

Cannabis worth €100,000 was discovered when Gardaí searched a car in the west of Ireland in the early hours of this morning.

At approximately 12:20am on Thursday morning, Gardaí stopped a vehicle in the Tobarteascain area of Ennis.

Approximately €100,000 of suspected cannabis was seized and an occupant of the vehicle, a man in his late 20s, was arrested.

During the course of a follow-up search of a residence in the area, a further €5000 of suspected cannabis was seized, along with a weighing scales and other drug paraphernalia.

The seized drugs (totalling €105,000) will now be sent to Forensic Science Ireland for analysis.

The arrested man is being detained at a Garda station in Clare under the provisions of Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996.
