A number of searches have been carried out in Dublin by Gardaí investigating insurance fraud.
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been conducting an investigation into ghost brokering activities.
Ghost brokers sell forged or invalid discounted insurance policies to unsuspecting consumers.
They usually advertise their services online or within local communities, typically claiming to be able to secure a cheap motor insurance policy.
Members of the SIU carried out two searches in the Dublin area on Wednesday.
A number of items were seized including smart phones, laptops, desktop computers, hard drives and two imitation guns.
Three bank accounts were also frozen under Section 17(1) of the Criminal Justice Act.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
