COCAINE worth almost a quarter of a million euro has been seized at Shannon Airport.
The haul - 3.4 kgs of cocaine valued at approximately €240,000 - was discovered by officers from Revenue’s Customs Service on Easter Sunday last, April 5.
A spokesperson for the Revenue said the find was a direct result of “routine profiling” at the airport.
Revenue’s detection dog, Ollie, assisted officers during a routine search of an aircraft which had arrived from the United States. The drugs were concealed behind a panel in the aircraft cabin.
An international investigation is ongoing in relation to the seizure.
