Money, cars and Rolex watches have been seized in two separate searches in Dublin and Wicklow.

The Criminal Assets Bureau seized cash, a fake gun and a TV during searches in Bray and Newtownmountkennedy this morning.

Five searches were carried out and around €6000 and £5200 in cash was found.

Documents and mobile phones are also being examined, while €144,000 has been frozen in a bank account.

No arrests were made, but CAB officers are continuing to pursue their investigations into a Wicklow-based organised crime gang.

In an unrelated search in Dublin, two cars, documents, phones and five watches were seized at a house in the Marrowbone Lane area.

The search targeted someone believed to be connected with suspected members of an organised crime gang involved in the drugs trade.

A 2011 Audi A4 S Line and a 2015 Citroen Berlingo Van were seized.

A quantity of documents, mobile phones, five watches (including Rolex and Breitling) were seized and no arrests were made.
