Junior associates of drug dealer Mr Flashy have returned to his mob's stash house to put in new windows and clean up less than 72 hours after it was damaged in a raid by armed gardai.

The teenage gofers spent several hours at the property, and it is understood two pit bull terriers were allowed to run loose in the front garden.

pathetic

"It was a pathetic sight to see these young fellas at work, cleaning up the house for more senior criminals after it had been damaged in the raid," a source told the Herald.

The clean-up came after gardai carried out at least their fourth raid on the Finglas property this year.

The house was one of three raided by gardai carrying out drug searches on Saturday evening.

Garda units, including members of the Armed Support Unit (ASU), pulled out the entire front window frame on the ground floor to gain access while the garda helicopter circled above.

They believe the stash house is being operated by an organised criminal gang controlled by Mr Flashy.

Images widely circulated on social media show gardai closing off the road and entering the house by force.

A man was arrested nearby for obstruction, and a vehicle was also seized in the operation. A small quantity of drugs was found.

The property has been target- ed on a number of occasions by rival mobsters, during which shots were fired at it.

It was also firebombed in another incident.

Mr Flashy and his gang are involved in a number of serious feuds across Dublin, including with local Finglas criminals as well as a Corduff mob.

The 26-year-old criminal is suspected of leading a crew of more than 20 thugs who are heavily involved in the drugs trade in west Dublin.

Dead

The mob also had close links to Coolock drug dealer Sean Little, who was shot dead near Balbriggan in May, and Zach Parker, who was fatally shot in Swords last January.

Last month, after another garda raid on the house, a Traveller mob was suspected of throwing a bomb through the window, which had been earlier removed by officers.

No one was injured by the blast.

Within hours of the bomb attack, around half-a-dozen Mr Flashy mobsters were seen cleaning up the property, only for it to be targeted again when gardai carried out a raid less than a month later.
