GARDAI are expected to question four men this morning in connection with the seizure by the authorities on Wednesday of watches, automobiles, and €700,000 in cash by the authorities.
The operation, which was coordinated by the Garda National Drugs and Organized Crime Bureau (GNDOCB), was intended to address drug-related concerns that were being encountered in west Dublin and other parts of the country.
When everything was said and done, 24 locations were searched as part of this operation, the most of which were in west Dublin, specifically Ballyfermot, Clondalkin, Lucan, and Crumlin, although there were several in the city centre as well.
During the search, a large amount of cash was discovered, ranging in value from approximately €7,000 to €250,000, for a total estimated value of approximately €700,000.
On the N3, a vehicle registered in Northern Ireland was stopped and searched, resulting in the seizure of cash with an estimated worth of €200,000, which was later valued at €200,000.
Other things seized include 16 watches, each of which is estimated to be worth a large amount of money, eight vehicles, media devices such as phones, and cash.
The two individuals have been charged and are scheduled to appear in Blanchardstown District Court at 10.30 a.m. today, according to court records.
A man and a woman who were also detained in connection with the investigation have been freed without being held accountable.
There will be a file produced for submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
