An estimated €40,000 worth of cannabis and amphetamines were seized during a raid on a growhouse at a Bunclody apartment on Thursday of last week.
The haul, which comprised of an estimated €20,000 worth of cannabis plants and €20,000 of suspected amphetamines, were uncovered during a search carried out by the District Drugs Team assisted by the Local Task Force Unit. A male in his twenties was arrested on suspicion of the sale and supply of drugs and is expected to appear before the court at a later date.
Gardaí said the drugs had an estimated street value of €40,000, subject to analysis.
Enniscorthy Gardaí also seized what was described as a small amount of cocaine at a house in an estate in Enniscorthy town on Saturday.
Gardaí and the local drugs unit carried out a search at the home where they uncovered the drugs, which have an estimated street value of between €50 and €300. Files concerning five suspects are being prepared for the DPP.
