A top source revealed last night that detectives were investigating the leader of a Armagh/Louth gang.
That gang leader is a main suspect in the murder of Garda Adrian Donohoe. However the leader has never been arrested in relation to the crime.
The source told The Telegraph the details of the investigation:
“He is being looked at very much in relation to the Co Monaghan crime, but his crew are suspected of at least one of the other ATM heists that have happened across the border, and in all probability a few more as well.”
