Seven people have been arrested and almost €450,000 in cash has been seized by the Criminal Assets Bureau following searches across Dublin and Wicklow.

Vehicles and high value goods were also seized during the raids at 11 locations, and over €260,000 in funds has been frozen in bank accounts.

Eight homes and three businesses were targeted this morning.

Gardai say the searches are part of an ongoing intelligence led operation targeting foreign nationals involved in the laundering of the proceeds of crime, accumulated by Irish-based organised crime groups.

Seven people arrested for money laundering offences contrary to Section 7 of the Criminal Justice Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Act, 2010 are currently detained at Garda Stations across the Dublin Metropolitan Region.

This morning’s search operation was conducted by the Criminal Assets Bureau, supported by the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) and Regional Armed Support Units, and assisted by the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB), the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB), Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB) and local District Detective Units. This operation marks a significant development in the Criminal Assets Bureau’s ongoing investigation into a criminal network involved in the laundering of funds for a number of national and international organised crime groups.
