Documents, mobile phones and electronic storage devices were also seized for examination.

According to the CAB, "evidence of considerable expenditure on a number of homes in the Dublin area" has been found and analysed by an expert.

A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of money laundering.

He's being held at Irishtown Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

In a statement, gardaí said: "Today’s search operation is a significant development in the CAB investigation and will be seen as a major upset to the network used by this organised crime gang to launder the proceeds of their drug dealing activities."

They add that the operation is ongoing.
