Revenue make four arrests in Dublin Airport cigarettes seizure

Revenue officers have seized more than 40,000 cigarettes with a retail value of €20,000 at Dublin Airport.

The ‘Kent’, ‘Marlboro Gold’ and ‘Winston’ cigarettes were discovered in the baggage of four Lithuanian nationals, two women aged 36 and 64 and two men aged 41 and 63, who had arrived on a flight from Copenhagen yesterday.

All four appeared before Judge Hugh O’Donnell in the Criminal Courts of Justice charged with the illegal importation of cigarettes.

They have been remanded in custody to appear in court again on Friday.
