Gardai make series of raids in connection with Romanian organised crime group

Gardai carried out a number of raids in Dublin’s north inner city, as well as Balbriggan, Donabate and Blanchardstown as part of an investigation into Romanian organised criminal groups.

The gangs are believed to have been involved in a number of aggravated burglaries of jewellery shops throughout the country, during the course of which staff members were assaulted.

A total of five men have been detained under the provisions of Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

They are all aged in their mid-thirties and are detained at a number of North Dublin Garda Stations.
