GARDAÍ have seized €179,000 in cash in  Co Meath, as part of an investigation into organised crime in the greater Dublin region and surrounding counties.

Gardaí from the National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau - including the Special Crime Task Force – seized the cash last Wednesday, in what they say was an intelligence-led operation.

No arrests have been made in relation to the seizure of cash.

The garda investigation is continuing, and the seized cash is undergoing forensic testing.

Gardaí hope the operation will disrupt criminal networks engaged in money laundering arising from criminal activity.

The operation follows a spate of recent seizures of drugs, money and guns in Dublin, Meath, and Louth, including €2 million seized in a single week in August.
