Customs officers have seized 7.5KG of cannabis during a routine search of packages at the Portlaoise Mail Centre.

The drugs were found in two separate packages, with some concealed in an child's armchair and others in wickerbaskets. The chair originated in the UK, while the boxes originated in Thailand.

The packages were consigned to addresses in Dublin City and Galway and investigations are on-going with a view to prosecution.
