Gang 'known to Gardai' stung as huge haul of fireworks and cash seized in Dublin


Gardai confirmed this morning that a follow-up operation in Dublin in connection to a Munster haul last night led to the seizure of a further €88,000 in cash and a quantity of fire-works.

As part of the investigation into the seizure of €130,000 of suspected cannabis and cash in Castlemartyr, Cork on Tuesday, Gardaí from Tallaght executed a search warrant at a house in the Tallaght area at around 8.30pm on Wednesday.

As well as this, Gardaí also seized €22,000 of suspected cannabis plants and herb in relation to the investigation following a search of a house in West Cork yesterday afternoon.

No arrests were made in Dublin or in the west Cork seizures but Gardaí are following a definite line of enquiry.

In West Cork yesterday at 3.30pm, Gardaí from the Divisional Drugs Unit executed a search warrant at a house at Union Hall.

During the course of the search Gardaí discovered €7,000 of suspected cannabis plants that were in a tent inside the house.

As the search of the house continued Gardaí found €15,000 of suspected cannabis herb and a weighing scales.
