GARDAI in Fermoy found this knife on a man who was arrested on foot of a bench warrant this afternoon.
The large implement was found “during a routine search carried out on the prisoner”, according to gardaí.
On the An Garda Siochana -Cork, Kerry & Limerick – Southern Region Facebook page, gardaí added: “Thankfully, we found it before he hurt somebody else or himself.
In the wrong hands, it could be fatal.
An investigation file will be prepared for the DPP on this matter.”
