Gardaí have seized €70,000 worth of suspected Cannabis herb following the search of a house in Galway city on Saturday.
Shortly after 4pm on Saturday afternoon, Gardaí attached to the Galway Divisional Drugs Unit conducted a search of a house in the Doughiska area of Galway.
During the course of the search, suspected cannabis herb worth €70,000 (subject to analysis) was seized, and an investigation is ongoing.
This seizure forms part of Operation Tara, an enhanced national anti-drugs strategy, which was launched by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris earlier this month.
The focus of Operation Tara is to disrupt, dismantle and prosecute drug trafficking networks, at all levels - international, national, local - involved in the importation, distribution, cultivation, production, local sale and supply of controlled drugs.
