Investigation underway after thousands of euro goes missing from Dublin garda station
An internal investigation has been launched after €12,000 went missing from a Dublin garda station.
The cash disappeared in December but details are only now emerging.
The Irish Sun is reporting that the money was seized from serious criminals.
It had been held in a safe but was later moved to another area, where it disappeared.
A senior detective has been appointed to investigate the incident.
A garda spokeswoman said: "A detective superintendent has been appointed to conduct an examination into the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of a sum of money from Kevin Street garda station in Dublin 2."
