Garda investigations are continuing following the discovery of a major cannabis grow house in Claremorris yesterday.
During a search at a disused premises in Ballinastanford, Claremorris, Gardai from the Claremorris Community Engagement Unit and Mayo Divisional Drugs Unit seized over 500 cannabis plants, with an estimated value of over €400,000.
Gardai are appealing for information on three men who left the area shortly before the discovery was made yesterday afternoon.
Chief Superintendent Tony Healy says taking this amount of drugs off the streets is to be welcomed.
He told Midwest News that this discovery brings to over €1 million the amount of illegal substances seized since the Mayo Drugs Task Force was set up at the end of last year....
