Revenue officers seized over 28.5kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of more than €570,000 at Rosslare Europort yesterday (Monday).
The illicit drugs were discovered with the assistance of Revenue’s mobile X-ray scanner and detector dog Jasper, concealed within a groupage load of an unaccompanied trailer that had arrived from Cherbourg, France on Sunday.
Investigations are ongoing.
These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing work targeting smuggling, shadow economy activity and the supply of illegal tobacco products. If businesses, or members of the public, have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on 1800 295 295.
