THREE men have been arrested in connection with a spate of car thefts and burglaries carried out across Ireland.
Following a search operation this morning (July 18), the men, two aged in their 30s and one in his late teens, were arrested at a location in Dublin city centre.
“They are suspected of being members of an organised crime group responsible for a number of burglaries and unauthorised takings of vehicles nationwide across the DMR, Eastern and North Western Garda regions in recent week,” gardai have confirmed.
The arrests are a result of an ongoing intelligence-led operation, led by the Garda Eastern region and involving units attached to the DMR, Eastern Region and National Units.
All three of the men are currently being detained at a Garda station in Dublin.
A vehicle has also been seized and will be subject to forensic examination.
Investigations are ongoing.
