Why the CAB (nearly) always gets its man

Like the Canadian Royal Mounties, the Criminal Assets Bureau (nearly) always gets its man.
Nailing the bureau's latest target, Tom 'Slab' Murphy is probably one of its biggest successes since it was established in the wake of the murders of 'Sunday Independent' journalist Veronica Guerin and Det Gda Jerry McCabe.
Garda McCabe was shot dead by members of a Provisional IRA unit, responsible for a spate of armed robberies in Munster in the mid-1990s.
