Two jet skis were among the items seized from a property in the Oylegate area as the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) carried out searches in Wexford and Dublin.

The operation took place last Thursday morning and also resulted in the seizure of five miniature mobile phones phones, four Rolex watches from a Tallaght address, documents relating to property purchased in Ireland and abroad and the freezing under money laundering regulations of €17,000 in a bank account linked to a criminal gang.

A CAB spokeperson described the search operation as a 'significant development in the context of an ongoing investigation targeting property acquired with the proceeds of crime by an organised crime gang involved in the sale and supply of drugs'.

Searches were conducted at eight locations in Dublin and Wexford by Criminal Assets Bureau officers assisted by local drugs and detective units along with regional armed Garda support units.
