A man appeared in court this morning after €750,000 worth of cocaine was seized at Dublin Airport.

During routine profiling Revenue officers stopped a 25-year-old Irish man who had arrived on a flight from Paris yesterday.

A search of his suitcase revealed four apparently empty rucksacks, each of which was found to have a concealment of cocaine sewn into the back panel.

He appeared in court this morning charged with the sale, supply and importation of drugs and was remanded in custody for a week.
