A SECOND SUM of money, that was being held at Balbriggan Garda Station as part of evidence to a crime, has gone missing.

A garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that a “criminal and disciplinary investigation” has now been launched to determine where the money has gone and how it went missing.

The spokesperson confirmed that this was a separate incident to the €9,000 that was discovered stolen from the same garda station last month.

A detective superintendent has been drafted in to investigate the disappearance of the €9,000 in cash that was being held in the north Dublin station after it was recovered moments after a robbery at a shop in Lusk on 19 January. When gardaí subsequently attempted to return the money to its owner a tear was discovered in the bag and €9,000 was missing.

The gardaí’s internal affairs and professional standards units are also looking into the matter of the first theft.

However, the garda spokesperson would not say if the same detective would be in charge of investigating the theft of the second sum of money.
