GARDAÍ BELIEVE THEY have stopped another murder linked to the Kinahan/Hutch feud after they arrested two men who were armed with a handgun.

Officers attached to the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (DOCB) stopped a car on the Howth Road in the north of the city earlier this afternoon.

Two men, aged in their twenties, have been arrested.

Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll said that gardaí continues to closely monitor the activity of people associated with organised crime groups with a view to protecting the life of their intended victims and to seize the proceeds of their criminal activity.

The Assistant Commissioner with responsibility for Special Crime Operations added: “Today, personnel attached to Special Crime Operations (SCO) and the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) in particular, supported by specialist units attached to Security & Intelligence, have again arrested suspects while in possession of a fully loaded hand gun in circumstances where it is suspected that there was an intention to murder.”

“We are determined to identify every member of organised crime groups who are a threat to the life of others and to target them for arrest and prosecution.”
