One more arrest in ongoing drugs war
SERIOUS CRIME GARDAÍ SWOOP TO COLLAR SUSPECT
THE FIGHT to eradicate what Gardaí have described as ‘serious crime’, in Bray continues with another arrest made following a search operation last week across the town.
A Bray man in his 20s was arrested under drugs legislation last Wednesday and detained all day. He was later released and a file sent to the Director of Public Prosecution who will decide if the evidence will warrant a case brought against the man.
Superintendent Michael Lernihan of Bray Garda Station confirmed that the individual is associated with serious crime in the Bray area.
This came two days after the arrests of two other Bray men in their 20s following a series of shooting incidents in the town.
Those two men were also released without charge and a file sent to the DPP.
Guns have been discharged in Bray three times in three separate incidents since last December.
A house in Ledwidge Crescent was targeted in December, followed by a home in Ashlawn Court the same month. Shots were fired through the windscreen of a car in Ballywaltrim Heights in January in a case of mistaken identity.
There were further unconfirmed reports of a gun having been wielded in the face of an innocent bystander in what is also thought to have been a case of mistaken identity.
Sources suggest that the crimes are linked to the activities of notorious drug dealers operating in Bray.
