Cannabis find worth €150,000 discovered behind Co Louth house where man died in explosion

Gardai have discovered cannabis worth €150,000 behind a house in which a 28-year-old man died following an explosion last night in Co Louth.

Speaking to media outlets, including LMFM, this afternoon at the scene of the explosion at a house in Beaulieu in Termonfeckin, Gardai explained that they had found an 'elaborate' grow house behind the residence.

“As part of a cursory search of the grounds, gardaí searched an industrial unit at the rear of the premises, where they found an elaborate, very professional cannabis cultivation plant.

“It had a number of rooms with up to 200 mature cannabis plants, at different stages of growth.

“The plants had an estimated street value of €150,000.”

Gardai also revealed that the three people involved in the explosion at the house were Lithuanian.
