AUTHORITIES SEIZED €85,000 from a British man who was stopped and searched at Dublin Airport yesterday morning.

The Revenue Customs Service says that a 49-year-old British man was stopped and searched as he was boarding a flight to Malaga in Spain as part of routine profiling.

The cash was found concealed in clothes in the man’s suitcase.

He was taken  to Dublin Circuit Court where this morning officers from the Customs Service were granted a three month detention order  so as that they can carry out further investigations.

The Revenue says that to date this year officers have made 16 cash seizures at Dublin Airport amounting to €391,000.
