The Criminal Assets Bureau has searched the home of a well-known Dublin criminal with links to the Hutch criminal gang.

The search is part of an investigation into the suspected proceeds of crime.

The bureau seized a Volkswagen GTI car, a lady's Rolex watch, documents, a computer, mobile phones and other electronic equipment.

The man was not at the house in north Dublin when CAB officers searched it this morning.

A number of attempts have been made on his life. He has been moving around after he was shot and seriously injured in Dublin in 2017.

Gardaí foiled an attempt on his life in Belfast last year and an Estonian criminal Imre Arakas is currently serving a jail sentence for his role in the incident.
