Seven people have been arrested throughout Wicklow and Dublin following an operation by the Criminal Assets Bureau.

This morning CAB carried out searches across 11 sites in the counties.

The searches were made as 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.

This morning's operation led to the seizure of €449,000 in cash as well as vehicles and high-value goods.

Meanwhile, a further €261,000 in funds were frozen in Irish bank accounts.

Seven people have been arrested for on suspicion of money laundering offences.

They are currently detained at Garda Stations across the Dublin Metropolitan Region.

Gardai say the arrests are 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.
