Two men were arrested and €300,000 was seized in Dublin yesterday.

The arrests were made as part of ongoing investigations targeting serious criminal activity in Dublin.

The arrests were made by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau after a planned search in Sandyford, Dublin.

Media reports state that the raid was targeting the Kinahan gang.

Along with the €300,000 cash, cash counting and packaging equipment was also seized.

He is also being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
