A GARDA station has been searched and a serving officer suspended as part of an investigation into the use of bogus insurance certificates.
Sixteen homes and a garda station in Limerick were searched on Thursday night and Friday, according to RTÉ news. Documents, phones, personal computers and two cars were reported to have been seized in the investigation led by officers from the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
It is understood no-one was arrested and the inquiries are continuing. The investigation is reported to have been triggered over suspicions about a number of insurance declarations made at the station. Officers discovered that people driving without insurance had been presenting forged, invalid or out of date documents at the garda station and these had been accepted and registered as legitimate. The suspended garda is expected to be interviewed under caution in the coming weeks.
