NI man arrested in Co Moanghan after diesel plant seized by Irish customs

CUSTOMS investigators in the Republic have arrested a man from Northern Ireland.

It followed the discovery of two fuel laundering plants in Co Monaghan.

The 27-year-old man from Armagh  was arrested after a raid at Killyneill, less than a mile from the border.

He was taken away to be questioned at Monaghan Garda Station.

Investigators discovered the plants in a private yard and a commercial premises and could six million litres of diesel a year.

That amounts to a loss the Republic’s public purse of £2.9 million (€3.5 m).

A diesel laundry was found at one of the premises when it was raided by customs officers last year.
