A LARGE AMOUNT of counterfeit cash has been seized after a raid at a lock-up in north County Dublin, gardaí have confirmed.

RTÉ reports that €10 million in counterfeit cash was seized during the operation.

The operation was carried out yesterday by members of the force’s Special Detective Unit.

Follow up searches were carried out today in the Coolock and Artane areas, yielding computer and printing equipment.

A man in his 50s has also been arrested, and is being detained at Coolock Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

Gardaí aren’t revealing any more details on the type of counterfeit currency seized — presumably for operational reasons.
