A Brazilian has been taken to court after customs officers intercepted €740,000 worth of cocaine from suitcases and in liquid form in shampoo bottles at Dublin Airport.

Efferson Pedrucci, 32, who had a Dublin address at Carrigmore Glen, Saggart, Dublin, and a Brazilian woman who claimed to be an escort were arrested on January 20.

They were accused of unlawfully possessing and importing cocaine and having it for sale or supply

Mr Pedrucci was remanded in custody on January 22 and charged with possession of drugs worth more than €13,000, which could carry a 10-year prison sentence

He was served with an evidence book today when he appeared in Cloverhill District Court. Judge Victor Blake granted the repatriation order for trial and sent Mr Pedrucci to the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court for trial. No bail was requested.

He will face his next hearing there on May 26th.

Judge Blake granted legal aid.

Garda Ross Brierley told a previous circuit court hearing that Mr Pedrucci did not respond to the charges.

He reportedly traveled from Sao Paolo via Lisbon with a female companion and landed at Terminal One shortly after 4:30 p.m. on January 20.

The woman, who allegedly had false papers, was stopped by immigration officials because she had a non-EU passport.

It was alleged that the defendant was traveling on an EU passport, carried on and waited.

Customs officers searched suitcases containing 8.5 kilos of cocaine worth 600,000 euros. There were also two two-kilo shampoo bottles said to be “liquid cocaine” worth 140,000 euros.
