Two professional premises, a solicitor's and an accountant's, were searched today as part of a CAB raid in Co Sligo. 

They were searched alongside five residential properties, one yard and a shed as part of a CAB operation which was backed up by local gardaí in the Sligo /Leitrim Division, the Garda Dog Unit and the Revenue Custom Dog Unit.

A total of eight searches were conducted, and documentation related to financial accounts, business activity and the ownership of assets was seized, along with electronic storage devices, and a small quantity of cannabis.

CAB said more than €85,000 “has been restrained” in financial accounts.

No arrests were made.

“The CAB investigation is focussed on the assets and activities of persons believed to be benefiting from, and laundering the proceeds of criminal conduct,” the bureau said in a statement.

“Today’s search operation resulted from the close co-operation between CAB and the local Garda Division through the CAB Divisional Asset Profiler network."
