Gardai raid cannabis 'factory' in Barntown

DETECTIVES from the Wexford Drugs Unit discovered a cannabis 'factory' set up in the bedroom of a house in Barntown last Thursday evening.

The house, at Colestown, Barntown, was searched under the Misuse of Drugs Act, at around 10 p.m. and a large quantity of cannabis plants were found growing in the house.

In addition, a quantity of cannabis herb was seized which had been made up into 'little deals'.

Inspector Denis Whelan said the plants were worth around €8,500 and the deals around €3,500. He said drugs paraphernalia had been seized during the search. A man in his late 20s was questioned and a file had been sent to the DPP.
