A LIMERICK sports ground was searched Tuesday in a major garda probe into allegations of match-fixing.
Members of the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB), formerly known as the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation, swooped on the sports facility this evening.
Detectives from the GNECB – based in Harcourt Square in Dublin – were supported by gardai attached to the Limerick Division for the planned operation.
A garda spokeswoman stated: “Gardaí can confirm a search took place this evening, Tuesday 3rd September, 2019 in Limerick at a sports ground.”
“An ongoing investigation is taking place and members from a national unit and local members conducted the search.”
Gardai remained tight-lipped on details relating to the investigation, however, it’s understood documentation and electronic devices were seized, as part of the search operation.
“Investigations are ongoing,” the Garda spokeswoman said.
