A passenger was “caught red-handed” after Dublin Airport customs officials seized €340,000 of cannabis hidden in luggage after he flew in from Los Angeles, a court heard on Saturday.

Brian Thackaberry (34) of Church Hill, Dunlavin, Co Wicklow, appeared before Judge Brendan Toale at Dublin District Court on Saturday and was denied bail.

He is charged with possessing the cannabis, having it with intent to supply and unlawful importation of the drug following his arrest just after 4pm on Friday.
