As part of an on going operation into the sale and supply of illegal drugs, Gardaí from Fermoy in a joint operation with customs carried out a planned search of a property, on the 14th July 2016, at Captain Keanes Grove, Mitchelstown Co Cork and discovered an amount of ecstasy tablets (subject to analysis) with an approximate street value of €120,000.
In a follow up search Gardaí from Fermoy discovered a small amount of cannabis herb and cocaine along with associated drug paraphernalia at a house in Liam Lynch Park Mitchelstown sometime later.
A woman was subsequently arrested and conveyed to Mitchelstown Garda Station where she was currently detained under Section 2 of the Drug Trafficking Act. She was subsequently released from custody pending a full investigation file to the DPP.
