Cannabis seized in Portlaoise after being detected by Stella the dog.

Revenue officers at the Portlaoise Mail Centre seized 8kgs of herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of €160,000.

The drugs were discovered today (16/11/2017), following routine profiling, when Revenue detector dog, Stella, gave a positive indication on a parcel that had been consigned from Romania to an address in Co Wicklow.

Investigations are on-going with a view to prosecution.
