Criminal falls asleep on the job

A post office robbery was averted yesterday after a criminal standing guard over a kidnapped post mistress injected himself with drugs and fell asleep, allowing her to escape. The woman (62) managed to alert gardaí in Monkstown, Dublin, where she had been held captive, at about 5am yesterday morning and a major security operation swung into action.
