A man is due in court in connection with the seizure of almost €400,000 worth of cannabis in Galway.

As part of Operation Tara, gardaí say they obtained a Section 26 warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act, 1977 and carried out a search at a residential property in Annaghdown, Galway, on Saturday.

During the course of the search, cannabis plants and cannabis herb with an estimated combined street value of €398,400 was discovered and seized.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before a special sitting of Galway District Court this morning.

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