Revenue dog sniffs out drugs at Portlaoise mail centre

Here’s a tip: Don’t mail your drugs!


STELLA’S BEEN AT it again.

Revenue’s busy sniffer dog was working at Portlaoise Mail Centre today where she discovered €300,000 of herbal cannabis.

The 15kgs haul was found on a package marked as “food and spices”. However, the dog knew better and had a “positive reaction”.

The parcel was consigned from West Africa to an address in north Dublin.

Investigations are ongoing.
