SHANNON Airport drug detector dog, Marley, was involved in the seizure of more than 12 kilograms of herbal cannabis with an estimated value of over €240,000 at the airport earlier today.

The parcels were destined for an address in Limerick and investigations are ongoing.

In a statement issued by Revenue this afternoon, a spokesman said that the seizure was 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 should contact Revenue in confidence on the  Confidential phone line  1800 295 295.
