The Rowlagh area duo in Clondalkin are not considered a major player in terms of organized crime, but sources say they are linked to one of the capital’s most notorious drug gangs.
A series of inquiries followed the massive bankruptcy, about which Gardaí disclosed details in an earlier statement.
“As part of an ongoing investigation targeting serious organized criminal activity, Gardaí from the GNDOCB (Garda National Drugs and Organized Crime Bureau) picked up a vehicle on the M4 motorway at around 7.30 a.m. this morning, Thursday, November 5, 2020 West Dublin intercepted, ”said a spokeswoman.
“Gardaí searched the vehicle and its occupants. In the course of the search, cash worth € 200,000 (subject to counting) was confiscated.
“Two men, aged 24 and 47, were arrested for money laundering under Section 7 of the 2010 Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act.
“Both men are currently detained at Lucan Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
“The investigation is ongoing,” she said.
“You have to keep in mind that a significant seizure of cash like this is much more harmful than drug seizure to the gang,” a source said.
“It would have taken a lot of time and effort before the organized crime gang got the 200,000 euros, and now it’s gone,” the source added.
The mobs suspected of controlling the money have ties to the Kinahan cartel and have become one of the largest drug trafficking mobs in the capital over the past five years.
Today’s seizure is one of the greatest against them. Sinus Gardai seized a huge amount of cocaine and encrypted phones from the crowd in March last year.
The leader of the crowd is a vicious crack cocaine dealer.
The bully had previously been arrested in connection with the murder of Dean Johnson, 21, an innocent victim of the Clondalkin feud, who was gunned down in 2013.
Since the murder of Mr Johnson, Gardai believed the thug “rose the ladder of crime” and became a senior member of the Clondalkin-based organized crime gang.
The drug dealer and his gang were embroiled in a bitter local feud with James ‘Nellie’ Walsh and his staff that claimed four lives before tensions in the feud eased early last year with the mob targeting today’s operation on top .
In September 2017, two “blood brothers”, Darragh Nugent, 36 and John Gibson, 27, were shot dead one week apart as part of the feud.
They were targeted at ‘Nellie’ Walsh, but Gibson was not seen as the lead actor and may have been targeted because of his relationship with a female relative of Walsh.
