Gardai seize cannabis plants worth over €500,000 in Cavan

AN industrial-sized cannabis-growing house has been dismantled by the drugs squad.

An empty house in Cootehill, Co Cavan, was raided yesterday and more than 1,300 cannabis plants seized.

Gardai said the huge drugs haul was worth about 520,000 euro.

The house on Church Street in the town had been converted for the illegal growing operation and no one was living there at the time.

Gardai said further forensic examinations would be taking place and there have been no arrests.
