GARDAI have seized approximately 7,000 Xanax tablets in a search in Cork.
The search was carried out in a house in Watergrasshill yesterday afternoon by members of Cork city divisional drugs unit, backed up by the Fermoy district drugs unit.
The search was carried out as a result of an ongoing operation targeting the activities of individuals believed to be involved in the sale and supply of prescription medications in Cork city and county.
A garda spokesman said: "During the course of the search Gardaí seized approximately 7,000 suspected Xanax tablets with an estimated street value of €14,000. The suspected drugs will now be sent to Forensic Science Ireland for analysis."
No arrests have been made but gardaí are following a definite line of enquiry.
