GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED three men and recovered a car following a burglary at a pub in Cavan town today.

Shortly after 6am a car failed to stop for gardaí patrolling the N3 Dublin Road in Cavan town. The car was followed by gardaí to Stradone village, where it crashed into a ditch.

The occupants of the car fled the scene on foot. During a follow-up search a short time later, three men aged in their late teens were arrested. There were no reported injuries.

It is understood the car, which was recovered along with a sum of cash, had been taken by intruders during the course of a burglary at a pub in Cavan town a number of hours earlier.

The three men arrested were taken to Cavan Garda Station and detained under section four of the Criminal Justice Act.

A forensic examination was carried out on the car and at the scene. Gardaí said the investigation is ongoing.
