The detection of a cannabis grow house in Edgeworthstown over the weekend has brought to almost a dozen the number of drug related offences recorded there since last March.
Plants and herb with a street value of more than €5,000 were found by officers from Granard during a planned search of a house close to the town last Saturday morning.
A man in his late 20s was arrested at the scene and brought to Granard Garda Station for questioning under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.
He was later released without charge.
