first_imgTHIS is some of the huge haul of cannabis recovered by Gardai after they busted a drugs factory in Buncrana.The haul, which was found in a specially-modified house on the outskirts of the town, is estimated to be worth at least €200,000. Three men, all foreign nationals, were arrested when Gardai stopped a car and then a van at a routine checkpoint in Burnfoot.A subsequent investigation led Gardai to the house which had been turned into a drug factory.It had been especially wired and ventilated to help the quick cultivation of t the plants which were then destined to be sold on the open drugs market.The drugs were put on display yesterday at Buncrana Garda Station. A sample of the drugs will be kept for any future court case while the rest will be destroyed at a secure location believed to be in the Midlands.The raid is the latest in a series of investigations which have uncovered similar drug factories in normal houses in St.Johnston, Carrigans, Stranorlar an now Bunacrana.Supt Kevin English of Buncrana Garda Station appealed to the public to remain vigilant for anyone behaving suspiciously.“This was especially adapted by technicians to cultivate these plants. From the outside this house looked like any other.“We would ask the public to remain vigilant and if they suspect anything suspicious to contact the Gardai immediately and we will take it from there,” he said.Ends REVEALED: THE HUGE DRUGS HAUL FOUND BY GARDAI IN BUNCRANA DRUG FACTORY was last modified: May 20th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:buncranacannabisdrug factorylast_img read more
