Revenue seizes over €79,000 cash in Dublin Port

On Wednesday (21/08/2019) at Dublin District Court, Revenue Officers were granted a three month cash detention order by Judge John Lindsay.

This followed the seizure of €79,110  last Monday (19/08/2019) when, following routine examinations of vehicles travelling to France, Revenue detector dog James showed an interest in a particular vehicle. The vehicle was stopped and searched by Revenue officers and was also scanned using Revenue’s Mobile X-Ray Scanner Unit. The search and subsequent scan resulted in the discovery of two packages containing the cash concealed underneath the vehicle.

Investigations are ongoing.

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.
