The parcels were destined for addresses in counties Tipperary, Dublin, Galway, Cork, Meath, Waterford, Kildare, Clare, Louth, Leitrim and Cavan, but were halted as part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the importation of illegal drugs.

In the Dublin area, routine operations at two premises saw illegal drugs seized, with an estimated value of over €370,000.
The drugs seized included small quantities of butane honey oil, cannabis resin, MDMA, ecstasy tablets, cocaine, synthetic cannabinoids and 18kgs of herbal cannabis.

In Athlone on Monday last, using the assistance of detector dogs ‘Bailey’ and ‘Sam’, Revenue officers discovered illegal drugs, while examining parcels, leading to the seizure of almost 4kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of €80,000.

Latter were concealed in various parcels labelled as ‘board games’, ‘car organisers’, ‘tuxedos’, ‘tea’, ‘jeans’ and ‘pet blanket’.
