Gardaí are questioning four men arrested following the seizure of €1.2m in cash. Yesterday’s haul was a result of three separate searches in Dublin and Wexford by Gardaí relating to organised crime.
Three men (29, 38 and 47) were arrested after the first search and a 44-year-old man was then detained after the third search.
The 44-year-old man was apprehended on suspicion of money laundering offences. All men are currently being detained under Section 4, Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Wexford Garda station.
Gardaí said that a total of €1.2m was seized in relation to three searches carried out by the National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau.
Officers stopped two vehicles off the Clonard Road in Wexford Town. They later conducted another search which led to the arrest of the fourth man.
In a separate search in the Ballyfermot area of Dublin, gardaí said they had seized “a very significant sum of cash”.
