Gardaí launch animal cruelty investigation following search

GARDAÍ have launched an animal cruelty investigation following the discovery of dead an emaciated animals at Ballingarry.

A dead dog and a number of horses were discovered when gardaí searched farm land in the area last weekend. The Department of Agriculture has been notified.    

The discovery was made after gardaí executed a search warrant at Castleconnell, Co Limerick, last Thursday and recovered a tractor that had been stolen in Lorrha. This led to follow-up searches in the Ballingarry and Cloughjordan areas.

Several other recently-stolen items, including agricultural equipment of high value, were found. The searches were conducted by gardaí in Borrisokane.

Members of the Divisional Drugs Unit also carried out several searches over recent days and made a series of cannabis seizures in Borrisokane and Nenagh. One large seizure of €1,700 worth of cannabis was made when gardaí searched a house at Upper Limerick St, Roscrea, last Saturday.

On the same day, a male was stopped at Main St, Borrisokane, and found to be in possession of €70 worth of cocaine. On Sunday, members of the Divisional Drugs Unit stopped and searched a male on Silver St, Nenagh. Amphetamine and cannabis with a combined value of €30 were found.
