Revenue officers seized cocaine worth over €750,00 yesterday at Dublin Airport.
Officers stopped and searched a 25-year-old Irish man who arrived at Dublin Airport from Paris, and discovered 11kg of cocaine in his luggage.
As part of their routine profiling, the officers searched the mans suitcase and found the drugs concealed in the back panels of four apparently empty rucksacks.
The cocaine has an estimated value in excess of €750,000.
The man was arrested at the scene and transferred to Ballymun Garda Station.
He appeared in court this morning, where he was charged with the sale, supply and importation of drugs and remanded in custody for one week.
