REVENUE HAS SEIZED over 10 kilogrammes of heroin with an estimated street value of over €1.5 million at Rosslare Europort today.

Officers from Revenue’s Customs Division were assisted by their sniffer dog Ralph who gave a positive reaction to a vehicle that had disembarked from a ferry arriving from France.

The Mercedes jeep was scanned by the Customs X-Ray Scanner, indicating an anomaly with the drugs found concealed inside the jeep.
