Drugs and alcohol worth more than €162,000 have been seized in separate operations in Dublin and Wexford.

Revenue officers at the Dublin Mail Centre seized over 3.4kgs of herbal cannabis on Friday as a result of routine operations, and with the assistance of detector dogs Bailey and Sam.

The drugs have an estimated value of €68,800 and were discovered in eight separate parcels - which originated from the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Spain.

The parcels were declared as items such as 'clothing', 'boardgames', 'jewellery' and 'kitchen supplies'.

They were destined for various addresses in Dublin, Kildare, Cork and Waterford.

In a separate operation earlier this week, officers seized over 24,600 litres of beer at Rosslare Europort.

The smuggled alcohol, with an estimated retail value of over €94,000 represents a loss to the Exchequer of €45,500.

It arrived in a foreign-registered truck that had disembarked a ferry from France.

Revenue say investigations are ongoing with a view to prosecution.
