Revenue seize drugs worth €760,000 in Dublin

Yesterday (18/07/2023), as part of an intelligence-led operation, Revenue officers seized approximately 100kgs of cannabis resin with an estimated value of €600,000 in Dublin. In a follow-up search of the same commercial premises, a further 8kgs of herbal cannabis, with an estimated value of €160,000, was also seized.

These seizures were made as a result of a joint operation involving Revenue’s Customs Service and the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB).

A man in his 40s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and is currently detained under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 at a Garda station in County Dublin.

Investigations are ongoing.

These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing joint investigations targeting organised crime groups and the importation, sale and supply of illegal drugs. If businesses, or members of the public, have information about smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on phone number 1800 295 295.
