Illegal cigarettes seized

IN an intelligence-led operation in Limerick, officers from Revenue’s Customs Service, assisted by gardaí, earlier today seized 100,000 cigarettes with a retail value of €47,000 and a potential loss to the Exchequer of €37,000.

The “Jing Ling” and “Golden Seagiies” cigarettes were discovered in unmarked brown boxes when a Ford Transit van was stopped on the Limerick/Tipperary border near Castleconnell. The van was also seized.

The male driver, a non-Irish national in his 30s, was arrested and taken for questioning at Nenagh Garda Station.
