Revenue seizes €90,000 in Dublin Airport

 Last Friday (03/08/2018) at Dublin Airport, Revenue Officers seized €90,000 in cash when they stopped and searched a UK national in her 30’s travelling to Amsterdam, following routine profiling. The cash was found hidden in a suitcase with the assistance of Revenue detector dog Josie. Revenue officers seized the cash suspecting it to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity.

On Saturday (04/08/2018) at Dublin District Court, Judge John Cheatle granted a three month detention order to allow Revenue to investigate further.

This routine operation is 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.
