    Default €9000 of raid cash goes missing in Garda station

    This is a bit curious, isn't it?

    The money in the bag was the suspected proceeds of an armed robbery at a post office in Lusk, north Co Dublin, last January.
    Armed raiders made off with €26,000 after holding up staff at the premises, but the haul was recovered soon afterwards.
    Detectives on an anti-crime patrol responded to an emergency call about the raid and intercepted the gang as they were making their escape.
    After the cash was taken by gardai to Balbriggan station in Dublin, it was bagged and tagged after being photographed for use as evidence in a subsequent criminal trial.
    The money was then placed in a safe at the station.
    However, when the owner of the premises called to seek the return of the money, gardai discovered a small tear in the side of the bag.
    The contents of the bag were checked and it was discovered that €9,000 had disappeared.
    Now, obviously investigations are ongoing and nothing is known definitively yet. But it looks like yet again members of the Gardaν could have serious questions to answer. On the News at One it was suggested that this could jeopardise the successful prosecution of the original robbery.

    I sure hope that there is no record kept of who had access to the "secure" safe - and that there is no CCTV monitoring....

    I'm just waiting for PJ Stone to argue that the guards were forced into it by Shatter's cutbacks...

    Surely if it's evidence there will be a chain of custody.

    If there isn't, or if it is deficient, it means more than simply a problem with this case. Practically any evidence processed in this station could be challenged.

    Surely there must be some sort of a paper trail esp with a hole in the bag

    Already being discussed here but probably deserves the thread on it's own....
