Revenue seize almost €369,000 cash at Dublin Port

Today (21/10/2022), at Dublin District Court, Revenue officers were granted a three-month cash detention order by Judge Treasa Kelly. This followed the seizure on Wednesday (19/10/2022) of over €367,000 and an amount of sterling (£1,200) at Dublin Port.

The cash was discovered, as a result of routine profiling and with the assistance of detector dog Robbie, concealed in a truck that was stopped and searched by Revenue officers before departing Dublin Port for the United Kingdom.

It is suspected that the cash is the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity and is detained by Revenue in accordance with proceeds of crime legislation.

A man in his 50s from Northern Ireland was taken by An Garda Síochána to Store Street Garda station for questioning.

Investigations are ongoing.

This seizure is part of Revenue’s ongoing work targeting smuggling and shadow economy activity. If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
