Revenue officers were granted a three month Cash Detention Order by Judge Bernadette Owens at Wexford District Court. This followed the seizure of €14,300 on Monday when, following routine profiling, Revenue officers, with the assistance of detector dog Flynn, stopped and searched a vehicle that had disembarked at Rosslare Europort from a ferry from Cherbourg, France.
A man originally from Romania but now living in Ireland was questioned. Investigations are ongoing. These routine operations are part of Revenue’s ongoing work targeting smuggling and shadow economy activity. If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
