An associate of a man whose home was seized by the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) yesterday was arrested along with his partner for money laundering offences.

The arrest of the man (33) and his partner happened just hours before CAB took possession of a house in Rowlagh Park, Clondalkin, which has been seized as part of the same investigation into a west Dublin organised crime gang.

The man and his girlfriend were questioned in relation to money laundering offences before being released without charge. A file will be prepared for the DPP.

While the pair were being quizzed, CAB seized the home of another couple with close links to the arrested duo. Relatives of Elaine Byrne and her partner handed over the keys to their home following a High Court order issued in December.
