Friday (14/10/2022), as a result of routine operations, and with the assistance of Revenue’s mobile x-ray scanner and detector dog Jasper, Revenue officers seized over 38kgs of herbal cannabis at Rosslare Europort.

The illegal drugs, with an estimated value of over €765,000, were discovered concealed in spare tyres when Revenue officers stopped and searched a polish registered articulated lorry and accompanying trailer that had arrived on a ferry from Cherbourg, France. 

A man in his 30s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and taken to Wexford Garda Station.  

Investigations are ongoing.

This seizure is part of Revenue's ongoing operations targeting the importation of illegal drugs. If businesses or members of the public have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on our Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
