 Sin products seized

Irish Revenue officers seized 98,000 cigarettes, more than 4 kg of tobacco and 2,950 litres of alcohol in Dublin Port on Friday, according to an Irish Examiner story.

The alcohol and cigarettes were discovered when officers stopped and searched a foreign-registered bus and van that had disembarked a ferry from Holyhead, Wales.

The tobacco products were branded Marlboro, Kent, Winston, Winchester, Vogue and Davidoff. They were said to have been concealed within numerous packages being transported in the bus and van.

The seized alcohol and tobacco products were said to have a ‘combined retail value of €89,600, representing a potential loss to the Exchequer of €62,500’.
