Gardaí are conducting a major search operation across five counties in relation to money laundering.

The operation got underway on Thursday morning at 15 premises across Dublin, Louth, Meath, Kildare and Laois.

It is being led by the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau, who are investigating the activities of a West-African criminal network.

They are suspected to be involved in the laundering of €14.6m in criminal proceeds through Irish bank accounts.

Gardaí from the Northern, Eastern and Dublin Metropolitan Regions are also involved in the search - along with officers from the Garda National Drugs, Organised Crime Bureau, and the Armed Support Units.

One line of inquiry is the possibility that laundered money may have been used by this criminal network to fund the purchase of property and other high value items across the country.
