Revenue officers seized over 5kgs of heroin and almost 8kgs of cocaine, with a combined estimated value of more than €1.3 million, at Rosslare Europort on Sunday.

The drugs were discovered when Revenue officers stopped and searched an unaccompanied trailer that had disembarked a ferry from Dunkirk, France.

The search, carried out with the assistance of Revenue’s mobile x-ray scanner, led to the discovery of the drugs concealed within a hidden compartment of the trailer.

A man in his 30s was arrested by Gardai and taken to Wexford Garda Station.
