During passenger screenings on a flight departing to Lisbon, Portugal, the customs canine, Peter indicated the possibility of cash on a French national about to board. Customs AMLT officials proceeded to inspect the passenger’s belongings and searches yielded to the seizing of €28,750.

As per legislation, the passenger agreed to pay a fine.

The customs department noted how the great chemistry between the Customs AMLT section and the Canine Unit has been instrumental in hampering the undeclared cash movement at our borders.
