It’s one of the great success stories in Ireland’s fight against crime -and now a new documentary will bring viewers behind the scenes at the Criminal Assets Bureau.

From the birth of the Bureau in 1996 and its first cases to its modern-day targets. including Insta-gangsters who show off their bling, the Virgin Media series follows the growth of the CAB over 26 years and highlights some of its more colourful cases.

Nicola Tallant chats to the CAB Bureau Chief Michael Gubbins about what it is like to be at the helm of such a celebrated agency. He reveals how, despite the passage of time, the Bureau hasn’t changed much in its work – still pursuing drug dealers and their ill-gotten gains.

We hear from some contributors to the new documentary and discuss the future of the Bureau’s work chasing the dirty money.
