Revenue seize car and cigarettes in Dublin 15

This morning, (11/01/2018), in an intelligence led operation, Revenue officers seized a car and more than 13,500 unstamped cigarettes, when they carried out a search under warrant of a private house in Dublin 15. 

The seized cigarettes, of brands including ‘Excellence’ and ‘West’, have a potential retail value of more than €7,500, and represent a potential loss to the Exchequer of more than €6,000. During the search, Revenue officers questioned a man in his forties and investigations are continuing with a view to prosecution. 

The majority of people pay the right amount of tax and duty. If you know someone is evading or involved in smuggling, report it. Contact Revenue’s Confidential Freephone 1800 295 295.
