Revenue seize €17,250 at Dublin Port

Yesterday morning (14/05/2018) at Dublin District Court, Revenue officers from Dublin Port were granted a three month Cash Detention Order by Judge Byran Smyth. This followed the seizure of €17,250 when Revenue officers stopped and searched a van that arrived in Dublin Port from Holyhead on Sunday morning (13/05/2018).  With the assistance of Revenue Detector Dog Blue, the sum was found concealed in the van’s glove box. The driver, a 25 year old man, was questioned. The money is suspected to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity.

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.
