Man (71) held in drugs haul

A 71-YEAR-OLD man was in garda custody last night after he drove off a ferry with a €355,000 haul of cannabis in a car.

The Spanish national is being held at Wexford garda station following the bust earlier at Rosslare Europort.

Customs officers stopped a car rolling off a ferry from France. They brought in a sniffer dog and he nosed out the drugs which were deeply concealed in the car.

A Revenue spokesman said the haul had an estimated street value of €355,000.

A total of 59kg of drugs were found in the car.
