Discovery of Growhouse and Arrest, Carrick on Shannon.

Gardai in Carrick on Shannon have discovered a growhouse at a house in Aughavas, near Carrigallen, Co. Leitrim and arrested one man.

During the course of the search a highly sophisticated grow house was discovered which had over 250 cannabis plants growing (subject to analysis) at a mature stage of growth. The plants have an estimated street value of €200,000.

One man (early 50's) was arrested and is currently detained at Carrick-on-Shannon Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

The house is sealed off for a forensic technical examination which is taking place at this time.
