A man has been charged in connection to the seizure of over €117,000 in cash.

The 35-year-old man was first arrested on Saturday due to suspicion of involvement in a money laundering offence.

Along with the cash, gardai also seized a Rolex watch and one vehicle during a search of the premises in Coolock, north Dublin.

The man was detained at Coolock Garda Station, and is now due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice (Court 4) today at 10:30am.

Following the bust, a garda spokesman said the seizure came as a result of an investigation into suspected organised crime gangs operating in Dublin.

They said: “On 16th January 2021, in the course of ongoing investigations targeting persons suspected to be involved in organised crime, the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) supported by the Garda Dog Unit conducted a search at an address in the Coolock area of Dublin.”

“One male, aged 35 years, was arrested on suspicion of involvement in money laundering related offence, contrary to the provisions of section 7, Criminal Justice (Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing) Act, 2010,” he said.

“He is currently detained under Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at Coolock Garda Station.”

Speaking yesterday Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll, head of Organised and Serious Crime, said: "We continue to target those causing most harm in our community.”
