A father of eight has been jailed for nine years for his role in moving over €2 million worth of cannabis.

Judge Martin Nolan said George Finglas (46), of North Circular Road, Dublin, was acting as a transporter and knew what he was doing.

On February 2nd, 2021, Revenue officials inspecting freight at Dublin Port using a sniffer dog discovered two pallets of cannabis herb covered over by portable gas heaters.

Gardaí from the National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau set up a surveillance operation and carried out a controlled delivery of the consignment to an industrial estate in west Dublin.

Detective Garda Jerome Twomey told Edward Doocey BL, prosecuting, that a person known as ‘Suspect B’ arrived at these premises. Finglas then arrived separately in a rented van and Suspect B began directing Finglas and another man to unload the pallets into the rental van.
