Gardaí have arrested a man in Dublin suspected of directing a criminal organisation as part of an ongoing investigation by the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau.

A search was carried out as part of Operation Skein in the Clonsilla area of Dublin 15 on Wednesday, during which €4,500 in cash, designer clothes, shoes and sunglasses were recovered.


The man (29) was arrested and is currently being held at Kevin Street Garda station under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.
