The operation was carried out by the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) with the assistance of local gardaí and the Garda Southern Region Armed Support Unit (ASU).

It targeted the assets and activities of an organised criminal group based in Listowel, Co Kerry, that is involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs.

The operation saw a total of four property searches and one professional search, with €12,600 in cash, suspected cocaine with an estimated value of €2,000 and electronic devices and documents also seized.
