€5,000 worth of suspected cocaine was seized in Kilkenny yesterday as part of Operation Tara.
The drugs were found during a search of a house in the city by members of the Unit D force under a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant.
Investigations are currently ongoing with arrests expected to follow.
Meanwhile, also in conjunction with Operation Tara, three thousand euro of cocaine was found in a separate property in the city yesterday evening.
The Divisional Drugs Unit arrested and detained one male, who was later charged with sale and supply in Kilkenny District Court.
