Gardai work with FBI to nab man and woman in Cork accused of international cybercrimes

By Marita Moloney

Two people subject to an international probe into cybercrime have been arrested with the assistance of gardai in Cork.

The Garda National Cyber Crime Bureau (GNCCB) arrested a man and a woman in connection with an ongoing investigation into transnational internet offences.

Gardai and the FBI had been conducting parallel investigations into the sale of illegal items online including: ransomware as a service, personal banking details, credit card details and false documents such as passports and driving licences.

The GNCCB, with assistance from local operational units in the Cork city area, conducted a number of searches on Thursday.

A 40-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman were arrested for suspected money laundering offences and are being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 in separate Garda Stations in Cork.

Property and assets, including crypto assets, have been seized, while computers are currently being forensically examined for evidential content.

The GNCCB have been working with the FBI, with the assistance from the Garda Liaison Officer in Washington and the FBI Legal Attaché based in London, in recent months in order to target the activities of cybercriminals.

Detective Superintendent Pat Ryan of the Garda National Cyber Crime Bureau said: "An Garda Síochána considers these arrests as significant in the context of transnational cybercrime and today’s action highlights the continued international law enforcement co-operation and commitment in tackling cybercrime”.
