A planned search was carried out at an address in the Sandyford area yesterday evening. Cash in excess of €300,000 was discovered and seized along with cash counting and packaging equipment.

Significant documentation was also recovered in the raid, including a ledger of locations where cash was due to be sent.

A man in his 30s was arrested at the scene and detained at Blackrock garda station. Follow-up searches were conducted in the Clondalkin area and a second man in his 30s was also arrested. He is being held at Clondalkin garda station.
