A significant quantity of illegal drugs, hidden in concealed parcels, and which were destined for addresses across the country, including in Longford, have been seized during a Revenue bust. 
Today (Wednesday, March 2), as a result of routine profiling, Revenue officers examining parcels at two premises in Dublin seized just over 6.9 kgs of various types of drugs including herbal cannabis, cannabis resin, heroin, methamphetamine, butane honey oil and hash cakes, with an estimated value of approximately €194,000.

The illegal drugs were discovered with the assistance of detector dogs Sam and Bailey, concealed in parcels labelled as ‘stickers’, ‘pet clothes’, ‘clothes’, ‘pencils’, ‘shoes’ and ‘antique glassware’, that originated in the United States, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and were destined for addresses in Dublin, Longford, Kildare, Meath, Cork, Limerick, Clare and Tipperary.
Investigations are ongoing.
  
These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the importation of illegal drugs.
If businesses or members of the public have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
