Nearly 140 kilograms of cannabis with an estimated value of €2,8 million have been seized at Rosslare Europort in Ireland. The drugs were discovered when tax officials stopped and searched a Spanish-registered truck and its trailer.
The truck had disembarked from a ferry from Cherbourg in France. The search, conducted using the mobile X-ray scanner, led to the discovery of the drugs hidden in a batch of vegetables.
Arrest for cannabis smuggling
A man in his forties was arrested at the scene and taken to Wexford Garda station. The case is under further investigation.
