Bolivian man arrested in liquid cocaine seizure at Dublin airport

A man has appeared in court after liquid cocaine worth almost €115,000 was seized at Dublin airport.

Officers from Revenue's customs service seized the 1.6 kilos of the drug as a result of routine profiling.

Officers suspected a 64-year-old Bolivian man who had arrived on a flight from Rio on Wednesday had ingested cocaine.

He was handed over to Gardaí and later produced 39 packages filled with liquid cocaine.

He was charged in connection with the find yesterday and will appear again in court next Thursday.
