WHOEVER SENT A package of cannabis to Ireland disguised as a parcel of food wasn’t counting on Stella to sniff out the real contents.

The clever Revenue sniffer dog discovered the drugs after a parcel sent from West Africa to an address in North Dublin was found at Portlaoise Mail Centre.

The drugs were discovered when Stella gave a positive reaction on a parcel, which was described on the manifest as ‘food and spices’.

Officers from Revenue’s Customs Service seized 15kgs of herbal cannabis with a street value of €300,000 from the package.

Investigations are on-going.
