On Wednesday (24/04/2024), as a result of risk profiling and with the assistance of detector dog Sam, Revenue officers seized over 14.2 kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of approximately €285,000 at Dublin Airport.

The illicit drugs were discovered concealed in vacuum-packed packages within the baggage of a passenger who had disembarked a flight from Spain.

A man in his 40s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and has since been charged. He is due 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.
