Revenue seize cocaine worth €105,000 at Dublin Airport

Last Wednesday (05/06/2024), as a result of an intelligence-led operation, Revenue officers seized approximately 104 cocaine pellets with an estimated value of €105,000 at Dublin Airport.

The illicit drugs were discovered when Revenue officers stopped and searched the baggage of a passenger who had disembarked a flight from Paris.

A woman in her 20s was arrested by An Garda Síochána and was subsequently charged. She appeared before the courts yesterday.

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 1800 295 295.
