Pot haul worth €2.4m seized at Dublin Port

by Gazette Reporter

A massive €2.4m haul of illegal drugs was seized at Dublin Port this week with help from an intrepid sniffer dog called Holly.

The bust was made during a joint operation between gardai and Revenue officers, who seized 376kg of cannabis resin and 9.7kg of cannabis herb.

Revenue later tweeted photos of the haul, along with a nod to the clever lab (pictured right).

The pot was discovered stashed in crates in the back of a lorry that had come off the boat from Holyhead on Wednesday evening.

A 41-year-old male from Northern Ireland was arrested in connection with the operation and he was being held at Store Street Garda Station.
