Gardai have seized €4 million cash in searches across Kerry and Laois.

The raids were carried out as part of a Garda investigation into the activity of an organised crime gang involved in an international drugs smuggling ring.

As part of the operation, two premises in Laois and in Kerry were searched.

€4 million in cash was seized along with 3 cars.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in an organised crime-related offence.

The 46-year-old is currently detained at Tralee Garda Station.

The Seizure brings the value of cash captured by the Organised Crime Bureau in the state to €8 million.

Assistant Commissioner John O'Driscoll says "An Garda Síochána, through its Organised and Serious Crime (OSC) section continues to target criminal activity associated with organised crime groups with a particular focus on depriving those concerned of the proceeds of their criminal activity.

"The seizure yesterday by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) of cash, potentially to the extent of €4 million, bringing to €8 million the total amount of cash seized by GNDOCB so far this year, is another important achievement, reflecting our determination to dismantle particular organised crime groups.”
