On Sunday last (16/10/16), following routine profiling by Revenue’s National Profiling Centre targeting the illegal importation, sale and supply of drugs, a vehicle importing plant machinery was profiled for further investigation by local Customs in the Border Midlands West Region.

Revenue seized a significant quantity of controlled drugs, including approximately 60 kilos of herbal cannabis; 33 kilos of cocaine; 2.2 kilos of MDMA and more than 72,000 ecstasy tablets.  The value of the drugs seized is estimated to be in excess of €4 million.  

Investigations are ongoing with a view to prosecution and no further details are available at this time.
