Garda member with number found on possible thug's phone arrested for 'info leak'

104

A young Garda staff member has been arrested for allegedly leaking confidential information.

The woman, in her 20s, worked closely with the superintendent at a south Dublin Garda Station and had access to classified documents.

A source told Dublin Live that a suspected criminal, who was stopped at a checkpoint in the capital earlier this week, was in conversation with a phone number linked to the woman.

An investigation was launched and it’s understood her home was searched on Wednesday in connection with the probe.

A garda spokeswoman confirmed to Dublin Live that a woman in her 20s was arrested on Tuesday as “part of an ongoing criminal investigation”.

She added: “An Garda Síochána has no further comment at this time.”
