A man in his 60s was questioned about the find. After follow-up inquiries have been completed, a file will be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine if there should be criminal charges.

The seized goods had an estimated retail value of €65,000 and represented a potential loss to the Exchequer of €55,000.
