Four arrested after gardaí give chase to petrol station burglars

The men were detained by gardaí as they tried to escape on foot.

FOUR MEN HAVE been arrested for questioning in connection with a burglary at a service station in Donabate, north Dublin, last night.

Garda traffic units, detectives and an air support helicopter all responded, after the alarm was raised shortly before midnight.

“Gardaí responded to a report of a burglary on Hearse Road, Donabate and that a dark coloured saloon car with four men on board had left the scene travelling in the direction of Swords,” a statement said.

Officers gave chase and the car was brought to a halt in the Donabate area. The men were arrested nearby as they tried to escape on foot.

A quantity of cash and other property was recovered.

The men, all aged in their 20’s, are being detained at Swords and Coolock Garda Stations under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.
