Two people have been arrested by gardai investigating an organised crime gang and money laundering.

As part of the ongoing investigation into criminal activities, a search was carried out by the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau at premises in Dublin 8.

Further searches at a premises in the Drumcondra area recovered 14 false IDs.

Gardai say they are continuing to investigate money laundering of over three million euro by the organised crime gang through false bank accounts in the past year in Ireland and Finland.

Inquiries are ongoing with financial institutions in Ireland, Europol and Eurojust into the activities of the gang.

This brings the total numbers of arrests to 11 in Ireland, along with a further three in Finland.

The investigation is continuing.
