Gardai have described the seizure of €211,755 in cash and the arrests of three men in north Dublin as another “significant impact” in their efforts to dismantle organised crime groups. 

Officers attached to An Garda Síochána’s Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) carried out the intelligence-led operation on Friday.

The huge haul of €211,755 was discovered at a location in Finglas, Dublin, 11 while a number of other premises were searched in west Dublin.

Three men aged 37, 39 and 40 have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in offences contrary to the provisions of section 72 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2006.

This relates to the alleged enhancing of the ability of a criminal organisation to commit or facilitate a serious offence, such as money laundering.

All three are currently detained at Clondalkin, Finglas and Blanchardstown Garda stations, pursuant to the provisions of section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

Speaking today, Detective Chief Superintendent Angela Willis, head of bureau at the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB), said Gardai continue to pursue organised crime groups involved in the supply of illicit drugs within our communities who are motivated by financial gain.

“We again have made a significant impact as we continue in our efforts to dismantle organised crime groups, by locating and seizing the suspected proceeds of their criminal activity,” Detective Chief Superintendent Willis said,

“This most recent seizure of cash by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau brings to €3.48 million the amount of cash seized by the bureau, to date, in 2021.

“The GNDOCB has also located and seized illicit drugs with an estimated street sale value of €12.1 million, a firearm and ammunition, in 2021, to date, demonstrating our unrelenting efforts to tackle organised crime that impacts on our communities.”
