A passenger was discovered to be in possession of a considerable amount of undeclared cash after customs sniffer dog Peter intercepted the individual.

The Maltese national was departing for Sicily when he was selected by the Customs Anti-Money Laundering Team for a currency check, which led to discovering the undeclared cash.

When asked by customs officials if he had any amount of cash that he wished to declare, the passenger replied no. A subsequent check found €10,000 in his luggage and an additional €1,450 in his wallet.

In the past five years, customs has intercepted €2,439,308 in cash.
