THIS 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.
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.
