Gallery: Gardai carry out series of raids linked to organised crime

NewsBy Sunday World

Gardai swooped on 10 homes across the south inner city this morning as the crackdown on organised crime continues.

The searches are being conducted as part of an on-going investigation into an organised crime group which is involved in the distribution, sale and supply of controlled drugs in Dublin city centre and adjoining suburbs.

Sources say these raids are connected to those on Wednesday in which high powered cars and motorbikes were seized from a home and premises in Crumlin.

One of the premises raided has links to gangland figure Greg Lynch.

Addresses that were the focus of attention today range from flats, apartments and houses in the Dublin 2, Dublin 8 and Inchicore areas of the capital.

At one address in the Liberties area a sniffer dog was brought in to assist in the search of a house which had multiple CCTV cameras on it.
