Man due in court over seizure of €150k worth of suspected cannabis in Monaghan
The drugs were seized following the search of a house in Monaghan on Monday.

A MAN IS DUE in court this morning charged over the seizure of more than €150,000 worth of suspected cannabis plants and herbs. 

The suspected drugs were seized following the search of a house in Monaghan on Monday. 

At around 9pm on Monday, gardaí linked to Carrickmacross Garda Station searched the premises under Operation Tara. 

A man, aged in his early 20s, was arrested at the scene and held at Carrickmacross Garda Station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Drugs Trafficking Act 1996.

Gardaí have now arrested a man over the seizure. 

He will appear before a sitting of Monaghan District Court today at 10.30am. 

Operation Tara was launched by gardaí in July to tackle illegal drug dealing at all levels across the country.
