Customs Canine Zekkin intercepted €15,030 in undeclared cash at the MIA departures lounge.

A young Maltese woman en-route to Dubai was stopped by Customs Officers after Zekkin gave a positive indication towards the passenger.

Customs Officers asked the woman how much money she was carrying to which she replied €10,000. When asked to present all the money she was carrying, the woman presented a total amount of €10,030. A thorough search in her checked-in luggage also led to the discovery of another €5,000.

The woman was offered an out-of-court settlement to which she agreed to and was administered a fine.
