Fourteen people due in court as part of Garda crackdown on crime in Dublin

A total of 14 people have been charged as part of a Garda crackdown on crime in the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) North Division.

The 14, including 12 men and two women, all aged between their late teens and 50s, are due to appear before Dublin District Courts sitting at Swords and the Courts of Criminal Justice during the coming days.

They were charged after gardaí attached to the DMR North targeted those involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs, associated criminality and money laundering offences as part of an ongoing investigation.

Gardaí say that since September, 2023 this operation in DMR North has led to the seizure of over €1.2 million in assets from those suspected of being involved in crime.

A total of 48 people have been charged.

In previous related operations, 18 people appeared before Dublin District Courts in September 2023 after Operation Satailt was staged by gardaí.

Operation Satailt was launched by gardaí to target money laundering and the proceeds of crime by focusing on those who profit from drug dealing, drug related-intimidation and extortion.

As part of the operation, gardaí charged 14 males and four females and referred one juvenile to the Garda Youth Diversion Programme.

The 18 people were charged with over 80 offences relating to money laundering, theft, and possession of drugs for sale or supply.

In March 2024, gardaí attached to the DMR North targeting those involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs, associated criminality and money laundering offences charged 16 people.

A total of 10 men and six women aged in their 20s and 30s were due to appear before the courts on this occasion.
