Gardaí have launched an investigation after drugs worth more than €70,000 were discovered in the Tipperary Fire Service headquarters in Nenagh.

Gardaí arrested a man in relation to the incident on 18 January after the drugs were discovered, according to the Irish Times

The man was later released without charges and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP). 

The drugs are believed by gardaí to be cocaine, "pending analysis", according to the publication. 

Although they didn't confirm that the drugs were found at Nenagh fire station, Tipperary County Council said: "an unknown substance was discovered at a premises in Nenagh and the gardaí were immediately notified".

"The Council is co-operating fully with gardaí on the matter and will not be commenting further pending the investigation."
