Five people have been arrested as part of a Garda operation into insurance fraud.
Two men - aged in their 20s and 40s - a boy in his late teens and two women - aged in their 40s and 60s - were detained on Tuesday.
This was part of follow up to searches that were conducted in a number of locations in April.
The Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB) operation was from an investigation relating to over 20 insurance claims and, in some cases, already involved payment being made.
Investigations indicated that a number of people submitted multiple claims, in many circumstances while using false identities.
The suspected bogus claims resulted from false claims of injury sustained through slips and falls.
Personnel attached to GNECB - supported by additional personnel attached to Lucan Garda station, CAB and the Armed Support Units - carried out a number of searches in the west Dublin area.
Search warrants were also executed at a number of solicitor's offices.
A number of high value cars and jewellery, with a value in excess of €300,000, was seized - along with a substantial amount of documentation and financial records.
All those arrested on Tuesday are being detained at Dublin Garda stations and investigations are ongoing.
