OFFICERS FROM REVENUE’S Customs Service at Dublin Airport yesterday seized €40,000 when they stopped and searched two men from Northern Ireland.
The 29-year-old and 30-year-old men were stopped and searched as they were about to board a flight to Malaga yesterday morning. The discovery was made on foot of an intelligence-led operation.
The cash was concealed in the men’s carry on baggage.
The money was seized by Revenue and in Dublin Circuit Court yesterday afternoon officers were granted a three month detention order in both cases in order to carry out further investigations.
