Inland Revenue officers seized drugs worth an estimated €272,000 during searches in Dublin today.
The searches were conducted as part of routine operations and with the help of sniffer dogs, Bailey and Sam.
The seizures included nearly 12 kg of herbal cannabis, 3 kg of hash cake, 240 g of cannabis resin, 6,750 zopiclone tablets, more than 1,000 diazepam tablets, 800 ecstasy tablets, as well as small amounts of butane honey oil and “magic mushrooms”.
The illegal drugs were discovered in over 40 separate packages, originating from multiple locations in North America, Europe and Asia.
The packages were labeled as items such as “toys,” “tea,” “boxing gloves,” “pants,” “chewing gum,” and “organizer” and were destined for addresses across the country. The investigations are ongoing.
These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing operations aimed at importing illegal drugs.
If businesses or members of the public have information about smuggling, they can contact the IRS confidentially on the confidential number 1800 295 295.
