Wexford People - - NEWS -

A SNIF­FER dog trained to find money at Ross­lare Euro­port re­cently turned up cash worth more than €10,000, the Dis­trict Court learned.

Cus­toms and Ex­cise prose­cu­tor Robert McGuin­ness suc­cess­fully ap­plied to re­tain the money for at least three months.

He ex­plained how £6,190 in ster­ling and €4,500 in euro were seized and he sus­pected that it was the pro­ceeds of crime.

The sus­pect notes were in two cars and came to light af­ter the ‘de­tec­tor dog’ went to work.

They were car­ried in sep­a­rate ve­hi­cles but both stashes were claimed by a man called Ste­fan Aure­lian Blaj with an ad­dress at 18 Sandy­ford Hill Rise in Dublin. He was not present in court.
