Naas Gardaí raid brothel in the town with Supt now urging public to report suspicious activity

Naas people are now being urged by the Superintendent to make contact about suspicious activity after Gardaí raided a brothel in the town.

Gardaí in Naas arrested two women last Friday, February 9th, in an apartment, just off the Main Street.

Supt Declan McCarthy expressed gratitude to the public for making contact with the Garda Station.

He is urging people in the Naas Garda District to look out for 24/7 people arriving and leaving properties.

Supt McCarthy said: "We are regularly monitoring brothel keeping and are urging the public to contact us about anything that indicates a brothel, such as loud music, knocking on the wrong door and a lot of activity."

It is understood that a small sum of cash was seized along with multiple mobile phones.  The two arrested women are foreign nationals.

A file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Within the past 12 months, four brothels in the Naas Garda District have been raided by Gardaí.

Keeping a brothel is contrary to Section 11 of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act 1993 and a conviction in the district court can result in a €1,000 fine or six months in prison.
