A garda spokesperson said this morning’s operation was a “significant development” in the on-going investigation targeting property acquired with the proceeds of crime by an organised crime gang involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs.

As part of this investigation, gardaí in Tallaght had already seized approximately €100,000 in 2017.
