€40,000 frozen in account after CAB raids in Dublin and Laois

Phones, electronic devices and documentation seized during the searches will be analysed by specialists in CAB.

THE CRIMINAL ASSETS Bureau has seized documentation and electronic devices while €40,000 has been frozen in an account after a search operation in Dublin and Laois this morning.

CAB conducted a search of two homes in Dublin 15 and Dublin 6, and two businesses in Dublin 2 and Co Laois.

All searches were carried out by CAB personnel supported local gardaí, officers from the garda national immigration bureau and by the emergency response unit. 

Phones, electronic devices and documentation seized during the searches will be analysed by specialists in CAB. 

Approximately €40,000 was also frozen in an account in a financial institution under Section 17 of the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010.

A garda spokesperson said today’s search operation was a “significant development in an on-going operation targeting an organised crime gang involved in the cultivation, sale and supply of controlled drugs”. 

CAB is currently investigating the beneficial ownership of a home in South Tipperary and another home in North Cork.
