A man has been arrested after almost €400,000 worth of cannabis plants and herbs were seized by Gardaí. 

As part of Operation Tara, Gardaí seized the drugs - valued at €398,400 - following a search of a house in Annaghdown, Co Galway on Saturday afternoon August 13. 

Gardaí obtained a Section 26 warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act, 1977 and carried out a search at the property.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before a special sitting of Galway District Court this morning Sunday August 14 after 10am.

All of the drugs seized will now be sent for further analysis.
