The smuggled alcohol was discovered in two separate trailers, one accompanied and one unaccompanied, that had arrived on Ferries from Dunkirk, France.
A man in his 40s was being questioned.
Separately, just less than a week later, at Wexford District Court, Revenue Officers were granted two three-month cash detention orders by Judge Justice Anne Power following two cash seizures totalling €9,000.
The cash was discovered as a result of routine profiling (with the assistance of detector dog Jasper) when Revenue officers searched an Irish-registered van that was booked to board a ferry to Bilbao, Spain.
The cash is suspected to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity and has been detained by Revenue in accordance with proceeds of crime legislation.
Two Irish nationals in their 20s and 50s were questioned and investigations into these seizures are ongoing.
These seizures form part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the shadow economy and smuggling.
