A 46-year-old man has been arrested after drugs with an estimated street value of €130,000 were seized in Co Waterford last night.

Gardaí carried out a search of a house in Lismore Park around 9pm yesterday and discovered what they described as "a large growing facility, which was ventilated and insulated to grow cannabis".

A total of 183 cannabis plants were seized, all at different stages of growth. The cannabis plants (subject to analysis) have an estimated street value of €130,800.

One man was arrested at the scene and was taken to Waterford Garda Station where he is currently being held.
