Assistant Commissioner of Special Crime Operations, John O'Driscoll, says the amount of cash seized is significant.

"I can't say precisely what's involved and the reason for that is that the money is packed in such a way that it will take some time to count it because we have to preserve evidence in the process but it is in hundreds of thousands."
