Raiders strike home of CAB chief

GARDA sources have confirmed that a break-in took place at the home of Chief Superintendent Felix McKenna, head of the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB).

But they stressed that “nothing sensitive” was taken“.

The house was burgled, but it was not targeted. It was one of a number of houses in the area broken into on the same night,” a garda source said.

Detectives said car keys were taken from Chief Supt McKenna’s house and his car was stolen.

Gardaí said the car and other items were recovered the following day. No arrests have been made yet in relation to the investigation.

The CAB has, to date, frozen more than €52 million worth of property and collected €72m in unpaid taxes and interest.
