Revenue officers seized almost €16,000 after searching two vehicles at Rosslare Europort on Friday.

Officers seized €15,500 in cash yesterday when they stopped and searched two vehicles arriving in Rosslare from Cherbourg, France.

The drivers, both Romanian nationals, were questioned and the cash, suspected to be the proceeds of, or intended for use in criminal activity, was seized.

At a special sitting of Gorey District Court late last night, Judge Haughton granted a three-month detention order to allow Revenue to further investigate the matter.
