It’s been reported that Kildare Gardai are investigating a young female Garda who was found using cocaine in a nightclub in the county.
It’s alleged that the young woman was discovered by security staff in the bathroom of a Kildare nightclub before Christmas and when Gardai were called she told them that she was a serving member in the midlands.
It’s alleged that she identified a colleague as her dealer.
Gardai have since launched an investigation as a result of the allegations, and carried out a search with a warrant. It is not known if the drugs were discovered or if Gardai involved have been suspended as yet.
Responding to media queries, a Garda spokesperson that the force “does not comment on internal disciplinary investigations”.
