Man held over Rosslare cannabis seizure

A man has been held overnight by gardaí in Wexford after customs officers seized drugs worth over €500,000 at Rosslare Europort last night.

About 30 kilos of cannabis was concealed in the tyres of a vehicle which was part of a container-load arriving into Rosslare on a ferry from France.

The drugs were discovered following a scan of the container by Revenue's mobile scanner.

The Irishman, who is in his 60s, is being questioned at Wexford Garda Station.
