Gardaí have seized approximately €130,000-worth of suspected cannabis following a search of a residence in Co Longford on Saturday afternoon.

The drugs were located following a search conducted under warrant by gardaí attached to the Roscommon/Longford Divisional Drugs Unit.

The residence in Aughnacliffe was searched at about 1pm, during which a "sophisticated cannabis growhouse" was also located in two bedrooms and the basement.

Cannabis plants worth an estimated €45,000 and cannabis herb worth approximately €85,000 were seized by gardaí and a man in his 30s was arrested at the scene.


The man has since been changed and is due to appear before Mullingar District Court later today.
