THE CRIMINAL ASSETS BUREAU has seized a number of items of clothing, watches and cash in a “significant development” into its ongoing investigations into a local organised crime gang in the Dublin 9 area today.

The search was assisted by officers from the local Detective and Drug Unit along with the Regional Armed Support Unit.

The items seized included €6,000 in cash, five Canada Goose coats, one Moncler coat and two Rolex watches.

These items are in addition to €14,560 that was seized by local gardaí from targeted searches in September 2019, a garda statement said. 

“This morning’s search operation is a significant development in an on-going investigation in to cash accumulated by a local Organised Crime Gang from the sale and supply of controlled drugs,” gardaí said.

This is an example of the Criminal Assets Bureau working with local Gardaí to target the low value assets of persons involved in drug dealing in the community in North Dublin.
