A man has been arrested after heroin and cocaine, with an estimated street value of €1.3 million were seized at Rosslare Europort this morning.

Revenue officers stopped and searched an unaccompanied trailer after it arrived on a ferry from Dunkirk in France.

The search was carried out as a result of routine profiling and using Revenue’s mobile x-ray scanner.

The officers found over 5kg of heroin and 8kg of cocaine, which were concealed in a hidden compartment of the trailer.

A man in his 30s was arrested and is being held at Wexford Garda Station.

Investigations are continuing.

If businesses or members of the public have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on free phone number 1800 295 295.
