‘Exotic collection’ of items had been in Garda possession for 11 years

February 2, 2021

A NUMBER of items seized by Gardaí almost eleven years ago have been forfeited to the State.

Judge Paul Kelly described the assortment as ‘an exotic collection’.

The items included a machete, a pick axe handle, wire cutters, a trolly jack, a ball hitch, a wheel brace, a spade and two number plates.

The properties were seized by officers in a search of a premises of Bernard Stokes at Ballymacool, Letterkenny, on April 11, 2010.

“No claim was laid by him or by anyone,” Sergeant Jim Collins told Letterkenny District Court.
