Cannabis Seizure

Cannabis seized and Polish man arrested at Rosslare port

The man has since been released by gardaí following the seizure yesterday.

NEARLY FOUR KILOGRAMMES of herbal cannabis was seized and a Polish man arrested at Rosslare Port yesterday.

Officers from Revenue Customs Service seized 3.7 kilogrammes of herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of €45,000.

The drug was concealed in drums of paint in a van that was stopped and searched after it passed through the Customs X Ray scanner as it disembarked from a ferry that had arrived at Rosslare Europort from France.

The Revenue says the seizure was part of routine profiling. A Polish man in his 30s was arrested and questioned at Wexford Garda station.

He has since been released and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
