Eight people arrested over spate of burglaries in Dublin

Seven men and one woman – all in their teens and early twenties – were arrested this morning.

EIGHT PEOPLE AGED in their teens and early 20s have been arrested as part of a major garda investigation into a spate of burglaries in Dublin.

The eight people – seven men and one woman – were detained after gardaí searched houses in Tallaght and Wicklow early this morning.

The burglaries had been taking place on the southside of the city in Dún Laoghaire, Blackrock, Dundrum and Cabinteely.

Gardaí in the areas had set up a dedicated investigation called Operation Acer to stop the burglaries. So far jewellery, clothes, computers, electronic equipment and a car have been recovered.

Gardaí said this morning that three of the people arrested – two men and one woman – will appear before Dún Laoghaire and Tallaght District Courts this morning.

The remaining five people are being held at three different garda stations in Dublin.
