By Dan Walsh

A man in his 20s, originally from Poland, was arrested by Gardaí in relation to the seizure of a sum of cash at Rosslare Europort on Saturday morning.

Revenue officers stopped and searched a Polish registered freight vehicle at the port. The vehicle was intending to board a ferry to Bilbao, Spain.

The search, carried out with the assistance of detector dog, Gus, and a mobile x-ray scanner, led to the discovery of €181,000.

Revenue officers were granted a three month cash detention order by Judge Kevin Staunton at a special sitting of Gorey District Court. Investigations are ongoing.

These routine operations are part of Revenue’s ongoing work targeting drug smuggling. If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
