Revenue seize herbal cannabis worth €612,000 at Dublin Airport

Yesterday (28/02/2024), as a result of risk profiling, Revenue officers seized 30.6 kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of approximately €612,000 at Dublin Airport.

The cannabis was discovered concealed within vacuum-packed packages in the baggage of a passenger who had disembarked a flight from Thailand.

A man in his 30s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and detained overnight under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act, 1996. He has since been charged and appeared before the courts this morning.

Investigations are ongoing.

This seizure is part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting organised crime groups and the importation, sale and supply of illegal drugs. If businesses, or members of the public, have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on 1800 295 295.
