The suspected drugs were found during a search of a house in Kenmare yesterday; they will now be sent for analysis.

Shortly after 7.30pm Gardaí from the Kerry Divisional Drugs Unit, assisted by Kenmare Gardaí, executed a search warrant at a house outside Kenmare town.

During the search Gardaí discovered a grow house in a shed at the rear of the property.

37 cannabis plants, which were at various stages of growth and are worth an estimated €29,600, were found inside.
