Rosslare Customs strike again - Kelly praises second drugs seizure

Cllr Anthony Kelly has welcomed a second drugs seizure by the customs team at Rosslare Europort.  The Wexford Borough Councillor said the seizure of cannabis worth €1.2 million which came just twenty four hours after Ralph the customs dog discovered €1.5 million of heroin showed the incredible efficiency of the staff at Rosslare Europort and also revealed the amount of illegal substances that dealers are attempting to move into the south east.

Cllr Kelly said;

"The customs team at Rosslare Europort cannot be praised enough for preventing a bank holiday bonanza of illegal drugs from making it into Wexford town and the surrounding towns and villages of the south east.  Clearly dealers see a potential mass market for these substances in this region.  The vigilance of staff at the port, particularly super sniffer dog Ralph, may have saved lives in this town over the bank holiday weekend."

"The efficiency of the customs team in Rosslare shows just why it is rightly considered a world class port by Sinn Féin.  We have consistently called for further development at the port so that it can accommodate larger international freight and ship it out faster.  At least we know now that as Rosslare Europort grows it will not be an easy target for the international drugs trade."
