IRELAND


As a result of routine profiling, Revenue officers seized 40kgs of cannabis with an estimated value of €800,000 at Rosslare Europort on Monday.

The drugs were discovered when Revenue officers stopped and searched a Polish registered articulated lorry and its accompanying trailer that had disembarked a ferry from Dunkirk, France. 

The search, carried out with the assistance of Revenue’s mobile x-ray scanner and detector dog Flynn, led to the discovery of the drugs concealed within the spare tyres of the trailer.

 


A man in his fifties was arrested by Gardai at the scene and taken to Wexford Garda Station.
