OFFICERS FROM REVENUE’S Customs Service at Dublin Airport today seized €23,500 when they stopped and searched a woman.

The 40-year-old woman from Thailand was stopped and searched during a routine cash-dog operation as she was about to board a flight to Amsterdam en route to Bangkok.

Revenue’s sniffer dog, Carby, gave an indication and the cash was discovered concealed in her carry-on baggage.

The cash was seized by Revenue in accordance with Section 38, Criminal Justice Act 1994.

In Dublin District Court this morning, officers were granted a three month detention order, in respect of the cash, by Judge Brian Smith in order to carry out further investigations.
