A 24-year-old male arrested in connection with this investigation has been released without charge. A file will now be prepared for the information of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau supported by the Special Crime Task Force and DMR North Central division carried out searches of premises in Dublin city centre, targeting crime associated with organised crime.
A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking following the seizing of a quantity of heroin. A number of encrypted communications devises have been seized in the course of the seven searches.
Assistant Commissioner, John O’Driscoll, who heads Special Crime Operations said:
“The searches undertaken this morning represent further evidence of the Garda Siochána’s unrelenting efforts to dismantle organised crime groups that are involved in drug trafficking and a wide range of other criminality and who are attempting to murder particular people”.
