A GARDA ARRESTED in connection with the theft of €9,000 from Balbriggan garda station in Dublin was “released without charge last night”, a garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie.

The man in his 30s was arrested yesterday morning and was questioned at a garda station in Dublin about the theft of the money.

The garda spokesperson added that “investigations are continuing”.

It follows an investigation into the theft of €9,000 from the north Dublin garda station shortly after a total of €26,000 was recovered in an attempted robbery of a shop in Lusk on 19 January.

Three men were caught making off with the money and were arrested by gardaí.

The stolen money was kept at the Balbriggan garda station but when gardaí subsequently attempted to return the money to its owner a tear was discovered in the bag and €9,000 was missing.

A detective superintendent was tasked with investigating the disappearance and both criminal and disciplinary investigations were set up with the gardaí’s internal affairs and professional standards units also looking into the matter.
