GARDAÍ HAVE SEIZED over €1 million in cash after searches in North Dublin and Dublin city centre that targeted a suspected organised crime group.

Concealed cash believed to be over €1 million was discovered during a search of a vehicle today.

The Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) conducted the search as part of ongoing investigations into people suspected to be involved in organised crime. 

Two premises were searched and several vehicles were seized.

Assistant Commissioner and head of Organised and Serious Crime John O’Driscoll said that gardaí “continue to target those causing most harm in our community”.

“This seizure of a significant quantity of cash will, we believe, contribute to the disruption and potential ultimate dismantling of particular organised crime groups that we continue to target, building on earlier success achieved, in recent years”.
