Man held over €280,000 cannabis haul
A 32-YEAR-OLD man has been remanded in custody in connection with the seizure by gardai of cannabis plants worth an estimated €280,000 at a rural house.
Lim Chun Wan, pictured, who gave an address at Corbally South, Tuam, Co Galway, was remanded in custody when he appeared before a special sitting of Galway District Court yesterday morning.
Judge Gerard Furlong was told by Inspector Michael Coppinger that gardai had been unable so far to positively identify the defendant but believed him to be a flight risk.
Mr Chun Wan, who is unemployed, is charged with possession of cannabis, cultivating cannabis plants, and possession of a controlled drug for the purpose of selling or supply.
He was remanded in custody to Harristown District Court next Friday.
