Customs seize cigarette haul

CONTRABAND cigarettes with an estimated value of €4,200 were seized by customs officials at Dublin airport yesterday.

The "Bond" brand of 9,780 cigarettes were discovered in a suitcase carried by a passenger en route from Moscow.

They were identified as so-called "illicit white" cigarettes that are legally produced in non-EU states but not available for sale here.

A 29-year-old Moldovan national was arrested and appeared before Dublin District Court yesterday morning.

He was remanded in custody to appear again before Cloverhill District Court next Thursday.
