[] It’s been a BAD week for drug smugglers…. (25 Mar 2015)


Police and customs officials on both sides of the border have had cause for celebration this week with hugely valuable drugs seizures taking place.

€1.75 million in cocaine was seized at Cork port, while €1.1 million in ‘skunk’ cannabis was grabbed by the PSNI in a major drugs sting in Northern Ireland.

The 25kg haul of cocaine at Cork Port came about after a routine inspection of containers being unloaded by a Central American freighter there.  Investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, the PSNI have seized €1.1 million worth of herbal ‘skunk’ cannabis as part of an international sting operation into drug-trafficking in Northern Ireland.
