Some of the cash seized in today's CAB raids.

THE Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) conducted a search operation in counties Donegal, Limerick and Cork earlier today, targeting the activities of a Limerick based criminal gang.

The operation was supported by the Southern Regional Armed Response Unit and Gardaí from Donegal and Limerick.

The searches were conducted in five separate locations and resulted in the seizure of a Rolex watch, documents and conveyancing files as well as €8,900 in cash at the Limerick search site and €14,000 in cash at the Cork search site

A Garda spokesman said that the operation marks a significant development in the overall CAB proceeds of crime investigation which will target assets including properties linked to the Limerick gang.
