Revenue officers seized 13.5kgs of cannabis resin worth over €80,000 in Dublin today, just 24 hours after €20,000 was seized in a separate operation.

Separately, at Wexford District Court this morning, Revenue officers were granted a three-month cash detention order by a judge following a seizure of £8,000 Sterling yesterday.

A Croatian man living in Ireland was arrested after he and his vehicle was stopped and searched after disembarking a ferry from Cherbourg, France.

Investigations are ongoing in all three seizures.
