A man has been charged after Gardaí seized a huge haul of suspected cannabis herb worth over €125,000 in Tipperary.

Officers arrested the man after raiding a house in a rural area between Nenagh and Toomevara as part of Operation Tara on Friday, February 11.

During the search, Gardaí discovered a "sophisticated grow house" in the attic of the residence containing 17 cannabis plants with an estimated value of €13,600.

Further searches revealed four sealed buckets containing vacuum packed amounts of cannabis herb with an estimated value of €112,000.

In total, €125,600 of suspected cannabis herb was seized (pending analysis).

A man in his early 60s was arrested at the scene and taken to Nenagh Garda Station where he was detained under the provisions of Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996.

He has since been charged in connection with the case and is expected to appear before a special sitting of Tipperary District Court (sitting at Nenagh) at 10:30am on Monday, February 14, 2022.
