Three arrested in cigarette raid

THREE men were arrested last night after millions of black market cigarettes were seized in a sting operation.

Gardai and Customs officials swooped in as two million cigarettes were being unloaded from the shipping container onto a flat top truck at Greenogue Business Park, Newcastle, Co Dublin.

The seizure is believed to be worth about €860,000 with an estimated potential loss of €500,000 to the Revenue.

Gardai arrested three men at the scene. Two of the men were 44 and the third was 38.
