A five figure haul of cannabis plants were seized by gardaí last night

A significant haul of cannabis plants were seized last night following a planned search by gardaí at a house in Lanesboro.

Divisional drugs unit officers, supported by local gardaí carried out the raid on the premises at around 7:30pm when the seizure was detected.

A significant quantity, believed to have an estimated street value of €107,000, was retrieved by officers and a woman in her 40s was arrested at the scene.

She was later brought to Roscommon Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act where he can be held for a period of up to 24 hours.

It comes after a small quantity of cannabis herb were discovered following a separate search, this time at a house close to Granard yesterday morning.
