A MAN IN his 30s has been charged with drug trafficking after 15 kilos of cocaine was seized at Dublin Port.

The man was caught as part of an intelligence-led joint operation between officers of the Revenue Commissioners Customs Service and the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau of An Garda Siochana.

Around 15 kilos of cocaine (which is pending analysis) with an estimated street value in excess of €1 million was seized following the interception of a haulage vehicle that had just arrived at Dublin Port from the UK.

The 36-year-old was arrested for drug trafficking offences and detained at Store Street Garda Station, under the provisions of Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996.

The suspect has been charged and is scheduled to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice at 10.30am tomorrow.
