REVENUE OFFICERS HAVE seized a number of stun guns from a house in south Dublin today.

Officers raided a house in Cherry Orchard this morning in a joint operation with the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau, and the Special Crime Task Force targeting the illegal importation of firearms.

A 20-year-old Irish man was arrested by gardaí and is detained at Clondalkin Garda Station.

The consignment of stun guns originated in Malaysia. Revenue said it is part of its remit to ensure that legislation in respect of prohibitions and restrictions is complied with at points of entry to the State.

Under the Firearms Act 1925, as amended by the Criminal Justice Act 2006, stun guns are prohibited weapons, except under licence.
