Three members of a suspected gang of Romanian crime gang have been arrested in Letterkenny.
The three men, aged 24, 25 and 31, were arrested following the search of a house in Letterkenny this morning.
It follows a high-level operation in recent days by members of the Garda’s serious crime unit.
A large quantity of items was seized during the investigation.
A Garda said the operation was “part of an ongoing investigation into a Romanian organised crime group” which is believed to also impact on the North.
Among the wide range of items seized was suspected cloned credit cards, credit cards issued in false names, bank account details, false Romanian identity documents and credit card machines.
Other items included till rolls and a number of suspected stolen Irish and UK passports and driving licences, along with two cars bought on finance obtained on bank accounts opened in false names, were seized.
A Garda spokesman said much of the seized items relate to suspected frauds in the North, adding that officers are working with Europol and the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI).
The three arrested men are being detained at Letterkenny and Milford Garda stations.Tags:
