THREE MEN HAVE been arrested after gardaí prevented what is suspected to be a potential gangland hit in Dublin this morning.

Three guns have also been seized, described by gardaí as a sub-machine gun, a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver.

The men were arrested when armed gardaí from the Garda Emergency Response Unit intercepted a van on Gardiner Street in Dublin’s north inner city shortly before 8am this morning.

Gardaí said that all three have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

While the ERU intercepted the van, the operation was organised by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau.

One of the men who has been detained is in his 20s and the other two men are in their 30s.

Assistant John O’ Driscoll, who is responsible for special crime operations (SCO) within An Garda Síochána, said that today’s arrests demonstrated the force’s commitment to preventing gangland murder.

We stated on numerous occasions that our efforts at tackling organised crime, particularly where it gives rise to threat to life, is unrelenting.

“The action taken today, through a combination of the resources assigned to SCO and security and intelligence, within the Garda Síochána, has yet again resulted in the arrests of suspects and the associated seizure of firearms”.
