Revenue dog finds €60,000 hidden in man's suitcase

Eva is a very good girl.

A MAN IN his 50s had €60,000 in cash taken from him as he attempted to fly to Poland yesterday morning.

The man had been flying from Cork to Gdansk when the cash was found in his suitcase by Eva, a Revenue sniffer dog.

Revenue Officers seized the cash suspecting it to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity.

Today at Cork District Court, Judge Olan Kelleher granted a three month detention order to allow Revenue to investigate further.

Revenue says that the “routine operation” is part of its ongoing work targeting smuggling and shadow economy activity.

If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on a confidential phone number 1800 295 295.
