Irish Examiner - - News -

Rev­enue of­fi­cers yes­ter­day seized 24kg of herbal cannabis, with an es­ti­mated street value of €480,000, at Dublin port. The il­le­gal drugs, dis­cov­ered as a re­sult of rou­tine pro­fil­ing, were de­tected with the as­sis­tance of Rev­enue de­tec­tor dog Meg, in a con­sign­ment that was said to con­tain “goods”, when it ar­rived in Dublin port from Spain. A Rev­enue spokesper­son said in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing. Rev­enue said that if busi­nesses or mem­bers of the pub­lic have any in­for­ma­tion about drug smug­gling, they can con­tact Rev­enue’s con­fi­den­tial phone num­ber 1800 295 295.
