Two Irish crime gangs dealt major blows after drugs worth €6.66m seized by Gardai and Revenue

TWO Irish crime gangs have been dealt major blows after drugs worth €6.66m were seized by Gardai and Revenue.

In the first swoop, a Dublin man was arrested in Amsterdam after cocaine worth €1.12m was seized after Dutch cops stormed a flat.

 The drugs crackdown on Friday was welcomed by               Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll

The seizure coincided with five raids by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau across Dublin and Meath.

During the operation, officers recovered €70,000 in cash, a car and encrypted electronic communication devices.

The raids also happened on Friday after a number of searches were undertaken on both sides of the border after a breach at the Encrochat encrypted handset devices.

The phones – which use a wifi signal to send texts and picture messages – are used by crime gangs including the Kinahan cartel around the world.

DEVICES COMPROMISED

A message was sent out last week warning users the devices had been compromised.

Following the breach, one man from Co Galway appeared at a court in the north charged in relation to information recovered from his phone.

The National Crime Agency in the UK are also involved in the probe.

We asked the gardai to comment on the breaches but no one was available for comment.

The drugs crackdown on Friday was welcomed by Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll, who runs the gardai’s Special Crime Operations.

The senior officer said: “The operation demonstrates the success that can be achieved through real time collaboration with our international law enforcement partners. Through working together, we can effectively tackle transnational organised crime groups.”
