Yesterday (02/03/2024), as a result of risk profiling, Revenue officers seized 36 kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of €720,000 at Dublin Airport. The cannabis was discovered concealed in vacuum-packed packages within the baggage of a passenger who had disembarked a flight from Toronto, Canada.  

A man in his 20s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and has since been charged. He is due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice tomorrow morning (04/03/2024). 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.
