7 People Arrested Following Seizure Of €450,000 In Cash By CAB.

: 06/30/2020 - 13:53

Seven people have been arrested and almost 450-thousand euro in cash has been seized by the Criminal Assets Bureau following searches across Dublin and Wicklow.

Vehicles and high value goods were also seized during the raids at 11 locations, and over 260-thousand euro in funds has been frozen in bank accounts.

Eight homes and three businesses were targeted this morning.

Gardai say the searches are part of an ongoing intelligence-led operation targeting foreign nationals involved in the laundering of the proceeds of crime, accumulated by Irish-based organised crime groups.
