THE CRIMINAL ASSETS Bureau (CAB) has conducted a search in south Dublin this morning of what is described as a “single, heavily fortified compound”.

During the search, 10 motorcycles were seized along with a number of cars and €4,000 in cash. 

It follows on from previous cash discoveries, and gardaí said in a statement that the raid today “marks a significant development in an ongoing money laundering and proceeds of crime investigation”. 

The search was conducted by CAB in conjunction with Crumlin District personnel and supported by the emergency response unit (ERU), air support unit, armed support unit and the Customs dog unit. 

During the operation, two men were arrested and detained for money laundering offences.

They are being detained under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at garda stations in Dublin.
