The Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) has appealed for people to report those flaunting unexplained wealth in a bid to track down crime gangs.

The public appeal for lifestyle data, such as luxury cars, powerful motorbikes, designer clothing and exotic foreign holidays, came as CAB officers focus on multiple operations outside the greater Dublin area.

Now, the CAB has appealed to the public to report any lifestyle issues they might consider suspicious, such as individuals who don’t have any specific means of income and yet who drive powerful, expensive cars and enjoy multiple foreign holidays each year.

In other cases, detectives have asked people to report anyone who may appear to have a job but whose spending appears vastly greater than their likely wages.
